About the performance:

“Giselle” is a French ballet hit, a dramatic fairy tale of love accompanied by the musical motifs of the classic Adolf Adan. The world premiere took place in 1842 in Paris. Since then, this classical ballet has been an adornment in the repertoire of almost all major world theaters. A performance based on the legend was created, which was once transmitted by Heinrich Heine.

The legend tells the story of the Willys - dead young unmarried girls who were betrayed by their lovers. Unable to stand the betrayal, the girls died and turned into vengeful and cruel spirits - Willis, who settled scores with young men at night.

Music: Adolf Adan Choreography: Marius Petipa, Jules Perrault, Jean Coralli Libretto: Theophile Gauthier, Jules-Henri Saint-Georges, Jean Coralli according to the legend of Heinrich Heine
