The Great Russian Ballet invites you to see one of the most popular ballet
productions of all time. Giselle is a masterpiece in two acts with music by
Adolphe Adam, and choreography by Marius Petipa.
Created in 1884 for the Imperial Russian Ballet, Petipa's definitive version
was first performed by the Russian Ballet (Ballets Russes) in 1910 at the
Palais Garnier. The role of Giselle is one of the most sought-after in
ballet. It demands both technical perfection, and outstanding grace and
lyricism, as well as great dramatic skill.
In the first act, Giselle has to convey the innocence and love of a country
girl, and the heartbreak of betrayal. In the second act Giselle must seem
otherworldly, yet loving. Today one of the most accomplished dancers to have
perform this role is Natalia Balan, the Artistic Director for the Great
Russian Ballet. For the 2019 Canadian Tour she will be joined by an all-star
cast of 40 highly skilled ballet dancers all trained in the Vaganova method.
Enjoy a fantasy journey, through beautifully decorated sets, fabulous
costumes and a master-piece of Petipa's choreography, to the heart of this
real life based romantic love story.
The Great Russian Ballet's "Giselle" is a magnificent performance for the
entire family to enjoy. We will be delighted to see you at our performances.
