Romantic ballet in two acts by Cesare Pugni. 160 min. Libretto by Andrei Petrov (based on the script by J. Perro and the novel by V. Hugo “Notre-Dame de Paris”). Musical adaption by Vladimir Kachesov. Choreographer-director is Andrei Petrov, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation. The performance contains choreographical episodes by Marius Petipa and Agrippina Vaganova. The romantic ballet “Esmeralda” based on the famous novel by Victor Hugo “Notre-Dame de Paris”, the final masterpiece of Classical Romanticism, for the first time saw the lights in 1844 on the stage of Royal Theatre in London (Jules Perro’s staging). Within more than 160 years it entered all European theatres and remained until now at the stages of Russia. The story of a young beautiful gipsy girl gained new life in the performance of the Kremlin Ballet Theatre in 2006. “Kremlin Ballet’s” artistic managing director Andrei Petrov, basing on Victor Hugo’s novel “Notre-Dame de Paris” and Jules Perro’s script made his uniquely beautiful and sensuous staging that will hardly leave anyone aside. Musical and choreographic interpretations of the famous novel always arouse interest of spectators, for time has no power over the story of a tragic entwinement of boisterous feelings, fatal desires, devotion and destructive hatred. This touching tale of love and death of a young gipsy girl reveals in the whole beauty of a sparkling dance of the 19th century. The performance is accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra Radio Orpheus (Artistic managing director and Principal conductor - Sergey Kondrashov)
