Runtime:min / 1.00
Description:'Napoli' (1842), ballet by August Bournonville (1805-1879), soloist, head of the royal ballet, and choreographer. Performed by Hans Beck (1861-1952), soloist and head of the royal ballet, and Valborg Guldbrandsen (later: Borchsenius), soloist (1872-1949). Peter Elfelt shot several ballet films. The scenes were performed in Elfelt's studio, due to the lighting requirements, which then gave rise to a problem of lack of space.
