Bolshoi Ballet: Giselle

Bolshoi Ballet: Giselle

The young peasant girl Giselle dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her will, she joins the wilis, vengeful spirits who now turn against Albrecht and condemn him to dance until he dies of exhaustion.

This gem of Romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in the classical repertoire, touching upon the great Romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy, and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.

Music Adolphe Adam Choreography Yuri Grigorovich Libretto Theophile Gautier and Jean-Henry Saint-Georges

Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

Running time 2 hrs 20 mins
