BOLSHOI BALLET – Giselle

BOLSHOI BALLET – Giselle

Captured live on Oct 11, 2015

With music from Adolphe Adam, choreography by Yuri Grigorovich and libretto, Theophile Gautier and Jean-Henry Saint-Georges

Cast: Svetlana Zakharova (Giselle), Sergei Polunin (Albrecht), Ekaterina Shipulina (Myrtha), Denis Savin (Hans), and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.

When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies of a broken heart in his arms. While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a vengeful spirit meant to make unfaithful men dance until death…

Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova personifies this ultimate ballerina role in the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht, in this chilling, yet luminous ballet that continues to captivate audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi.

Café open from 5pm. Please call our Box Office on 01768 868000 to pre-book a table.
