Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala's Academy
Teatro alla Scala production

From 26 April to 4 May 2013

Running Time: 2 hours 05 minutes intermissions included

Notes on the performancesOpen 
A sunny world of simple parties, spontaneous joy, and a mysterious, dark and terrible world in which spirits reign. A story of love, betrayal and redemption in which the protagonists have to alter the technical and expressive register in the choreographic development from happiness to desperation, from carefree self-mastery to awareness that life has no purpose without love.

Giselle encompasses all the elements of the romantic ballet, lifting them into a universal story and a structure that exemplifies tradition. The Coralli-Perrot masterpiece, with the settings by Aleksandr Benois from La Scala’s repertoire, lives on in the choreographic version staged by Yvette Chauviré, who with the refinement of roles like Giselle has managed to enhance classical tradition in all its purity.
