Please do not mess with Golfo 2


This dear man, his name is Andreas Fussel, comes to us courtesy of our good friends on Facebook, Richard Slaughter and Marcus Galante.

Andreas is all dolled up to play the role of Golfo in the Bournonville ballet, “Napoli.” This he did from its premiere in 1842 until 1863.

Golfo is a sea demon ruling the Blue Grotto. Kindly do not mess with him.
