Giselle with live orchestra Guest artists: Marianela Nuñez and David Hallberg
Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company is one of the world’s elite ballet companies, as the Nuovo Regio Ducale Teatro alla Scala. This revival of Giselle was staged by the late French prima ballerina Yvette Chauviré of Paris Opera Ballet. The ghost-filled ballet tells the tragic story of a beautiful peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of a deceitful nobleman, Albrecht. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak, and Albrecht must face the consequences of his careless seduction. Giselle transports audiences from idyllic folk scenes to otherworldly realms with the technically demanding original Coralli-Perrot choreography set to Adolphe Adam’s beautifully haunting score.
Set and Costume Design: Aleksandr Benois, elaborated by Angelo Sala and Cinzia Rosselli; Ballet Director: Frederic Olivieri
