CURZON - WINNER OF THE 2017 BAFTA FOR OUTSTANDING BRITISH CONTRIBUTION TO CINEMA

Bolshoi Ballet: Giselle (12A)

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.

Saturday 14 April 3.00pm, Curzon Victoria
