Giselle

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 05 March 2016

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

This treasure of a romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in 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.

Captured live on stage in Moscow and screened at Riverside.
