Giselle is a tragic romantic love story with a peasant woman, Giselle, and a noble man Albrecht. A highlight of the classical ballet with great challenges for the dancers.
Romantic ballet in 2 acts. One of the most frequently performed pieces in classic style. First performance in Paris in 1841 followed by the first performance in Italy in 1843 at La Scala in Milan. A difficult piece for solo dancers, which all the famous artists try and are remembered for.
Two acts with a pause in between. This means that you go during the break from your premium seats in the parquet to the famous Toscanini foyer and refresh yourself with a glass of spumante. Access only from the parquet area.
Performance by the Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company. Prima Ballerina is Svetlana Zakharova on days 17, 19, 24 of September. Guest dancers on these days David Hallberg. The music is performed by the Teatro alla Scala Academy Orchestra. Conductor David Coleman.
The performance lasts 2 hours and 5 minutes including the break. We promise a successful evening.
