19:00 Giselle
Ballet to music by Adolphe Adam. 150 mins (with one interval). Libretto by Theophile Gautier, Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges. Choreography: Jean Coralli, Jules Perrot, Marius Petipa. Giselle is a masterwork in the classical ballet performance canon. The ghost-filled ballet tells the tragic, romantic story of a beautiful young peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of the deceitful and disguised nobleman Albrecht. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak, and Albrecht must face the otherworldly consequences of his careless seduction. The masterpiece of classical romantic choreography came to be in 1841 thanks mostly to immeasurable talents of Carlotta Grizi, a ballerina equally adored by poet and writer Théophile Gautier, librettist Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges, choreographers Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot and composer Adolphe Adan, who created the ballet together as a token of their shared fascination. The story of love that triumphs over death was danced by many great dancers and ballerinas of the world, and to this day remains an inspiration to ballet stars the world over.
Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theater 
19:00 Onegin
Ballet by John Cranko in three acts to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. 155 min. Sets and Costumes - Jürgen Rose. Choreographic supervision - Reid Anderson. Ballet Masters - Agneta Valcu, Victor Valcu. Lighting Designer - Steen Bjarke. Music Director - Pavel Sorokin. Rights owner - Dieter Graefe. Arrangement and Orchestration - Kurt-Heinz Stolze. The score has been made available by Adrian Thome Musikverlag, Munich. John Cranko's interpretation of Pushkin's verse-novel contains some of ballet's most emotionally charged moments, set to stirring music by Tchaikovsky. Onegin displays all of Cranko's genius as a narrative choreographer - within a tight dramatic structure, Cranko creates finely drawn characters who are changed by the conflicts that they face.
