Shows and Concert

A ballet from Spain and a Monologue from Italy: two splendid shows in Bodø on July 19th at 5.30pm!

On July 19th at 5.30pm in Bodø you will have the opportunity to preview a ballet dedicated to the figure of Pietro Querini, the Venetian merchant who in 1432 was shipwrecked in Nordland and was welcomed on the island of Røst and who returned home, who, according to the tradition, returned home with stockfish.

The ballet is brought to Bodø from Spain by the CAMINO DE SANTIAGO DE LA RÍA DE MUROS NOIA Association in collaboration with the International Association Via Querinissima and the Nordland Fylkeskommune (Nordland County Council).

The complete show will be premiered next autumn in Santiago de Compostela. During the Via Querinissima days in Bodø, they will present a preview of the show with the lead dancer of the Oitos Dance Company.

The ballet will be followed by another important event: a monologue on stockfish  by the famous Italian singer and actor Pino Costalunga. An absolute premiere for a show produced by the “Confraternita del Bacala’ alla Vicentina” and by the Via Querinissima International Association, in collaboration with the Nordland Fylkeskommune (Nordland County Council).

These two events are part of the Via Querinissima Days held in Bodø (European Capital of Culture 2024) from 18 to 20 July, at the same time as the famous Coastal Festival («KYSTEN – veien mot Europa» organized by Kystlaget Salta)

We look forward to seeing you on July 19th at 5.30 pm on the stage at the port of Bodø! (Participation in the events is completely free and does not require any reservations. The stage will be outdoors at the port of Bodø)
