The story of “Giselle” in Russia
In Russia this ballet has had a great reception throughout its history and in different squares. In 1842, on the stage of the Mariinsky Theater, and later on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater, Giselle was first shown to Russian connoisseurs of Melpomene and has never since left the Russian stage.
In 1944, the brilliant Soviet choreographer Leonid Lavrovsky proposed the author’s edition of the choreography of the great classics Coralli, Perrault and Petipa. The first Giselle of the “new time” was the legendary Galina Ulanova. It was in Lavrovsky’s choreographic arrangement that the ballet Giselle entered the Russian ballet repertoire.
Continuing the glorious traditions, the classical troupe of the Moscow Ballet Theater presents the story of the young shepherdess Giselle and her lover, Count Albert, in a classical setting.
