NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

A story of love, betrayal and redemption between merry village festivities and the ghostly flock of the fascinating but ruthless Wilis, Giselle continues to move audiences with its charming narrative and the moving performance of its protagonists. Animating the contrast between a bright and cheerful world and a dark, frightful kingdom populated by spirits, Coralli and Perrot’s unforgettable romantic ballet returns in the rendition of Yvette Chauviré, who – through the refined precision of roles like Giselle – has succeeded in exalting the purity of the classical tradition and making it famous around the globe. The musical accompaniment will be entrusted to the Orchestra of the Accademia Teatro alla Scala, conducted by David Coleman.
