Description

In its fourth U.S. tour, the Moscow Festival Ballet, under the direction of Artistic Director Sergei Radchenko, brings its production of Adolphe Adam’s romantic ballet Giselle. This Moscow Festival Ballet production is a recreation of the original Jules Perrot and Jean Coralli production of Giselle.

A company of 60 dancers hand-picked by Radchenko himself performs this dramatic two-act grand ballet intertwining love and tragedy. Principal dancers include Olga Grigorieva, Maria Sokolnikova, Goukhar Usina, Dmitriy Dmitriev, and Anatholiy Kazatsky.

The story of Giselle is quintessential. Giselle, a young village maiden, falls in love with Prince Albrecht, in disguise as a peasant. He is betrothed to the daughter of a duke but loves Giselle. Giselle discovers the deceit, goes mad, and dies of a broken heart.

The company will perform it’s production of Giselle set to the glorious and familiar score by Adolphe Adam after the 1884 choreography by Marius Petipa.
