The Classical Ballet and Opera House presents
Giselle performed by National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Mari El. Music by ADOLPHE ADAM.
Giselle is a classic romantic ballet. The main idea of the ballet, undoubtedly − love. Love, which was a sublime self-sacrifice in the beginning of the way and becoming aware of his irresistible force in the final. Ballet Giselle was established on the basis of the old poetic legend about the Wilis. Wilis called the bride, who died before the wedding. The action of the ballet is in one village. Gisele − peasant girl − falls in love with Albert, who, as she thought, was a simple peasant. But, having learned that he was dressed as a gentleman and he has a bride, She goes mad and dies. But this is not the end...
