Performance recorded on 11 October 2015
Music: Adolphe Adam
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich
Libretto: Theophile Gautier & Jean-Henry Saint-Georges
When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman,
she dies of a broken heart in his arms.
While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a vengeful spirit
meant to make unfaithful men dance until death…
Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova personifies this ultimate ballerina role in
the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht,
in this chilling, yet luminous ballet that continues to captivate audiences for over
150 years at the Bolshoi.
