Russian National Ballet: Giselle
The Russian National Ballet performance of Giselle will hold you spellbound with its haunting romantic story, stirring score, sumptuous choreography, and exquisite dancing. In this tale of love, betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption, a heartbroken peasant girl dies after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. She wakes in a supernatural realm inhabited by vengeful spirits who enchant the forest, bewitching the men to fall under their deadly spell. With achingly beautiful music, brilliant choreography by Marius Petipa, and passion-filled dancing under the direction of the legendary Elena Radchenko, this icon of the classical ballet repertoire will captivate you from beginning to end.
