We are standing with Ukraine, our fatherland. The principal dancer in our production of “Giselle” is Denys Nedak, who was born in Ukraine and performed in the National Ballet of Ukraine and was named Honored Artist of Ukraine.
We are praying for Ukraine and an end to the war.
“Giselle” is a romantic ballet in two acts and is considered a masterwork in classical ballet. It was first performed in Paris, France in 1841. This ghost-filled ballet tells the tragic, romantic story of a beautiful young peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of the deceitful and disguised nobleman Albrecht. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak, and Albrecht must face the otherworldly consequences of his careless seduction.
