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. Libretto: Theophile Gautier and Jean-Henry Saint-Georges. Cast: Svetlana Zakharova (Giselle), Sergei Polunin (Albrecht), Ekaterina Shipulina (Myrtha), Denis Savin (Hans), and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.
