Bolshoi Ballet 2018: Giselle Film Poster


Bolshoi Ballet A ballet with music by Adolphe Adam and choreography by Yuri Grigorovich. 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. Captured live on Oct 11, 2015, Music - Adolphe Adam; Choreography - Yuri Grigorovich; 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. 140m including interval. Tickets £17.50 (Friends/Students £15)
