In the great tradition of grand ballet, the Moscow Festival Ballet presents the romantic tale of a young peasant girl who falls in love with a count disguised as a villager. This masterpiece, which was preserved by Russian dancers and choreographers, is filled with vengeance, betrayal, and death, but love and forgiveness prevail over all. This stunning production by these leading Russian dancers blends Petipa's brilliant choreography with a haunting score, and resplendent costumes and sets.
"The dancers of the Moscow Festival Ballet spoke to the soul through the body, performing a magnificent Giselle." - Post and Courier
