Giselle

When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies of a broken heart in his arms.

In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry ending in heart-wrenching tragedy…Alexei Ratmansky, former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, stages the company’s premiere of his “poetic” production (The New York Times) with dramatic urgency and a fresh re- telling of Shakespeare’s beloved classic. His brilliant and detailed adaptation set to Prokofiev’s romantic and cinematic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated star-crossed lovers like no other classical ballet choreographer today.

However, the Prince realizes too late that Fate has another plan for him…A ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection born at the Bolshoi in 1877. In the dual role of white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin.
