Russian National Ballet's Giselle At Queensborough Performing Arts
Giselle, the consummate Romantic ballet will be presented by the Russian National Ballet at
the Queensborough Performing Arts Center<http://www.qcc.cuny.edu/qpac/> (QPAC)
on March 17 at 3:00pm. A mysterious, gentle, and melancholy story of innocence,
betrayal, and ultimately love, the role of Giselle is one of the most
sought-after in ballet. To win the role, a ballerina must have near perfect
technique, outstanding grace, and great dramatic skills.
"Surrender your heart to the ultimate ballet of the Romantic era," says Susan
Agin, Executive and Artistic Director of QPAC.
Haunting and poetic, Giselle tells the story of a peasant girl who falls in love
with a prince, and the heartbreak and despair that follow. With a moving score
by Adolphe Adam and choreography by the French master Marius Petipa, Giselle
offers both the promise of young love and the tragedy of it slipping away, in
one evening of stunning classical dance.
