About Moscow Ballet

Giselle - Show Info
Following a triumphant Silver Anniversary tour, Moscow City Ballet comes to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with their production of Giselle.

Moscow City Ballet’s exceptional repertoire combines artistry, technique, narrative and live music to provide breath-taking productions of ‘big story’ Russian dance. The audience can not only marvel at the perfection of its corps de ballet but witness the superb dexterity, grace and vitality of the principal dancers from this young and talented cast.

Founded in 1988 by Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, Moscow City Ballet remains in the safe hands of his devoted wife Ludmila Neroubashchenko, who has been leading the ballet company for the last few years.  Ludmila has remained faithful to Victor's unique choreography and production which has entertained and fascinated audiences of all ages world-wide.

Carefree village girl Giselle goes mad and dies of a broken heart when her peasant lover Albercht is unmasked as a nobleman who is betrothed to another.  In Act 2 of the ballet, when Albercht visits her grave, he finds the spirits of other maidens who died before their wedding day (the Wilis) dancing among the graves in the moonlight.  Any man who sees the Wilis dancing is doomed to dance until he dies from exhaustion, but Giselle’s spirit and everlasting love for Albercht saves him from death.
