Kullervo: Interview with Dancer David Scarantino

Finnish National Opera | David Scarantino: Dancing Kullervo

In KULLERVO David Scarantino dances the part of Kimmo, the hero’s best and only friend. This role casts light on the action from yet another perspective.

 

In the saga KULLERVO, dancer David Scarantino takes on the role of the hero’s best friend. With Kimmo this tragic story acquires a character who strives constantly to understand Kullervo and to alter his destiny for the better.

The American talks about his exceptional collaboration with Tero Saarinen and explains how two metamorphoses merge into one in KULLERVO. Tero Saarinen’s abstract choreography transforms the tragedy by Sibelius into a contemporary work, making KULLERVO relevant to us today.
