Kyrgyz National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater, Bishkek



The ballet “Giselle” is a legendary performance, the indisputable peak of a romantic ballet, in which the legend of the Wilis Heinrich Heinze, the fantasies of the choreographer Jules Perrault and the poet Theophile Gauthier, the charming tunes of the fashionable composer Adolphe Adan and the real story of passionate love of 4 men for the great ballerina Carlotta Grisi, the first performer of the Giselle party.
The ballet premiere in Paris in 1841 was an incredible success. “What is not in this work. And fiction, and poetry, and music, and the composition of new pa ... and harmony, full of life, grace, energy, ... That's what is called ballet, "wrote theater critic Jules Janin after the premiere. On the stage of the Paris Opera, the ballet Giselle lingered for a long 18 years and was shown 150 times.

The Russian fate of the ballet is no less successful. In 1842, on the stage of the Mariinsky Theater, and later on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater, Giselle was first shown to Russian connoisseurs of Melpomene and has since never left the Russian stage.
In 1944, the brilliant Soviet choreographer Leonid Lavrovsky proposed the author's edition of the choreography of the great classics Coralli, Perrault and Petipa. The first Giselle of the “new time” was the legendary Galina Ulanova. It was in the choreographic arrangement of Lavrovsky that the Giselle ballet entered the treasury of Russian ballet.
