BALLETS BOLSHOIGiselle was first performed in Paris in 1841. Originally choreographed by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, the role of Giselle was intended for Carlotta Grisi as her debut piece for the Paris public. She became the first to dance the role and was the only ballerina to dance it at the Opera for many years.

The performance is bifurcated into two acts that draws audiences through an array of emotions and situations of life. The story revolves around a young peasant girl, Giselle, who falls in love with a nobleman posing as a peasant. The story runs into love triangles, betrayals and heartbreaks which trails its way to the grave and beyond.

Known for its strength in exuding emotions, this great romantic ballet is an experience one must witness. To know more about the performances and booking details, please visit
