Great Russian Ballet - Giselle @ Jack Singer Concert Hall| Arts Commons| Canada, we are coming back with one of the most breathtaking ballet productions of all time. This death-defying love story, “Giselle”, is a masterpiece in two acts with music by Adolphe Adam, and choreography by Marius Petipa, from Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot. First created in 1884 for the Imperial Russian Ballet, Petipa’s definitive version was performed by the Russian Ballets (Ballets Russes) in 1910 at the Palais Garnier. The role of “Giselle” is one of the most sought-after characters in ballet. It demands both technical perfection, and outstanding grace, 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 being betrayed. In the second act, Giselle must seem otherworldly, yet loving and forgiving. Enjoy a fantastic journey, through epically decorated sets, fabulous costumes and a masterful choreography, that leads the heart through this touching and deeply romantic love story.
