Bolshoi Ballet: Giselle (2015)
A special production captured from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.
Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live are thrilled to bring the intense and romantic beauty of Giselle, performed and broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, October 11.
The young peasant girl Giselle dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her own will, she joins the wilis, vengeful spirits, who now turn against Albrecht and condemn him to dance until he dies of exhaustion. This treasure of romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in classical repertoire, touching upon the great romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy, and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.
