19:00 Giselle
Premiere! Ballet in two acts to music by Adolphe Adam. Libretto by Theophile Gautier and Jean-Henry Saint-Georges. Choreography by Jean Coralli, Jules Perrot, Mauris Petipa. Set and Costume Designer: Robert Perdziola with the use of Alexandre Benois' sketches. 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.
