Mystery, drama, thriller, the story of immortal love - all this is Giselle, one of the most beautiful ballets in history! The old legend of the Willis, interpreted by Heinrich Heine, comes to life on the stage. The ghosts of girls who died before their wedding come out of their graves at night and dance with frantic delight in the moonlight. Woe to those who get in their way: Willis circle the wayfarers in a frenzied dance until they fall dead... Young Giselle died, unable to survive the cruel betrayal of her beloved, and joined the ghostly brides. But her forgiving love, which was stronger than death, saved her lover from the vengeance of Willis.
The ballet "Giselle" became a symbol of the continuity of generations for Natalia Kasatkina and Vladimir Vasilev. While restoring the masterpiece, they tried to convey the details of the performance that are passed from teacher to student in the ballet world. The production of Natalia Kasatkina and Vladimir Vasilev preserved the classical choreography, subtle poetry and amazing drama of the great ballet.
Duration: up to 3 hours (with intermission).
