Russian National Ballet performs Giselle presented by Music Worcester

About the Show:

Adolphe Adam’s masterpiece returns to The Hanover Theatre in a new production by the Russian National Ballet. A romantic tale complete with intrigue, heartbreak, ghosts, and revenge, Giselle has been a repertoire staple across the globe since its premiere in 1841.

Giselle was first seen in Moscow in 1843, just two years after its creation in Paris, and a year after it was staged in St. Petersburg. When Giselle was forgotten everywhere else in Europe (it was dropped from the Paris Opera repertory in 1868) Russian dancers and ballet-masters preserved and honored it. The Moscow Festival Ballet’s production maintains the Russian tradition of scrupulous production and loving concern for this gem of the Romantic ballet.
