Moscow Festival Ballet: Giselle
- April 16, 2010 at 8:00 pm
In the great tradition of grand ballet, the Moscow Festival Ballet presents the romantic tale of a young peasant girl who falls in love with a count disguised as a villager. When Giselle discovers the truth about her lover’s identity and his engagement, she dies of madness and joins the ghosts of girls who avenge the evil deeds of the men who have jilted them. This masterpiece, which was preserved by Russian dancers and choreographers, is filled with vengeance, betrayal, and death, but love and forgiveness prevail overall. This stunning production by these leading Russian dancers blends Petipa’s brilliant choreography with a haunting score, and resplendent costumes and sets. “The dancers of the Moscow Festival Ballet spoke to the soul through the body performing a magnificent Giselle.” (Post and Courier)
