Presented by the Bolshoi Ballet.

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.


Music: Adolphe Adam 
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich 
Cast: Svetlana Zakharova (Giselle), Sergei Polunin (Albrecht)
