The Deal

Moscow Festival Ballet’s Giselle

A defining piece of 19th-century ballet blanc, Giselle mixes the beauty of classical ballet with the early Romantic period’s penchant for folk mythology and high emotion. When Giselle discovers that the man she desires, Albrecht, is a disguised nobleman—and engaged—the young peasant flies into a frantic madness that wears out her heart. She is soon resurrected, however, by the Wilis, a group of womanly spirits who dance men to death. Giselle joins them in their hunt for prey, but comes to a crossroads when they stumble across Albrecht, lingering at her tombstone in remorse. Will she forgive her former beloved, or spirit him away to the underworld in revenge?

One of the most demanding roles in ballet, Giselle requires impeccable form and control from the lead as she transitions from a naïve villager to an ethereal spirit. Adolphe Adam’s score is equally as diverse and delicate, setting the scene with Germanic waltzes during the first act’s village dances. The sonics grow darker later on when sinister woodwind trills underscore the Wilis’ deadly game.
