A romantic ballet

Lenght of Performance

The romantic ballet Giselle is a masterpiece of world ballet production. Among other things, it also carries a possibility to present completely different backgrounds, such as contrast between beauty and ugliness, love and hate, dream and reality, the world of fairies and rural environment. The inspiration for the creation of ballet Giselle was a Slavic legend described by Heinrich Heine.

The first act of the production will be a demonstration of folk dance technique choreographed by Vladimír Marušin. On the other hand, the second act will be a demonstration of classical dance technique choreographed by Lyudmyla Zhytnykova. The production will be directed by Slovak director and choreographer Ondrej Šoth.
