Spellbinding and fabulous ballet performances, breath-taking movements with aristocratic

The stage overflows with impeccably trained artists performing your beloved stories created

ballet techniques and outstanding emotions. Spectacular and exciting choreographies, this is

Great Russian Ballet as you've never seen it before, performed by the best artists from Russia

and entire world, that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

The Great Russian Ballet invites you to see one of the most popular ballet productions of all

time. Giselle is a masterpiece in two acts with music by Adolphe Adam, and choreography by

Marius Petipa.

Created in 1884 for the Imperial Russian Ballet, Petipa’s definitive version was first performed

by the Russian Ballet (Ballets Russes) in 1910 at the Palais Garnier. The role of Giselle is one of

the most sought-after in ballet. It demands both technical perfection, and outstanding grace

and lyricism, as well as great dramatic skill.

In the first act, Giselle has to convey the innocence and love of a country girl, and the

heartbreak of betrayal. In the second act Giselle must seem otherworldly, yet loving. Today

one of the most accomplished dancers to have perform this role is Natalia Balan, the Artistic

Director for the Great Russian Ballet. For the 2019 Canadian Tour she will be joined by an

all-star cast of 40 highly skilled ballet dancers all trained in the Vaganova method.

Enjoy a fantasy journey, through beautifully decorated sets, fabulous costumes and a

master-piece of Petipa’s choreography, to the heart of this real life based romantic love story.

The Great Russian Ballet‘s “Giselle” is a magnificent performance for the entire family to

enjoy. We will be delighted to see you at our performances.
