RUSSIAN STATE BALLET & OPERA HOUSE

GISELLE

After sell-out performances last year, Russian State Ballet and Opera House return for their annual UK tour with the premiere of the most romantic ballet in the world, Giselle.
 
The gravely ill peasant girl Giselle falls in love with the handsome Prince Albrecht, who has been unfaithful to her. When jealous rivals claim her fiancé, the heartbreak is too much for her to bear. Weakened by her ill health and driven mad by despair, Giselle takes her own life. 
 
After her funeral Prince Albrecht visits her grave. The spirits of women betrayed before their wedding days return to take revenge on their philandering fiancés by dancing them to death. Only Giselle’s powerful love saves the remorseful Albrecht from this cruel fate, proving that love can conquer all – even death.
 
This is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see Giselle as never before. Former award winning Bolshoi Ballet Soloist Konstantin Uralsky has created an original production with a new twist to this classical ballet, with new set and superb, handmade costumes.
