"Tarantella" is an exuberant pas de deux by George Balanchine, full of brilliant swagger and charm, and loosely inspired by the energy and lively rhythms of southern Italy.

The dancers are required to show speed, precision and athleticism, but mixed in with the pyrotechnics are some witty and cheeky steps, to give it a feeling of open-hearted, good natured fun.
