Baroque Dancing


More fantastic statues from Bagheria’s Villa Palagonia. I love the one at the top of the arch. He looks like he’s dancing the tarantella! (Photo Credit: Experience Sicily’s Filippo Buttitta).

On Friday, April 1 at 7:30PM, in Teaneck, NJ, USA at Classic Quiche Cafe, my music ensemble Villa Palagonia will be sharing a Sicily-inspired evening of music with composer and musician John T. La Barbera. Please join us! We’ll be playing some tarantellas! For more information about the show, please visit

  1. More than fantastic – also phantasmagorical! Wow, look at those scary faces. Like Tolkien walked back in time and brought with him the Fellowship of the Rings and all that scary characters! Wonderful!

    Good luck with your concert tonight – and have fun! ❤

    • Phantasmagorical! What a word! Love it. Yes, imagine in 1780 going to this place and seeing these crazy images? We’re sort of used to this kind of weirdness, but at that time, no way. It was shocking!
