Description “Giselle” by Radu Poklitaru
A classic story of tragic love, narrated in the language of contemporary dance: the original performance of the Giselle ballet permeates to the heart of every viewer. More emotions, more expression! Contemporaries of the composer Adolphe Adan, the creator of this masterpiece of world classics, never dreamed about such impressive choreography.
For Radu Poklitaru this is not the first experiments with reading of traditional libretto, but it is one of the most successful. Modern revision has already been subjected to “Swan lake“, “Carmen“ and “the Nutcracker“, now it is a turn to add new colors in the love story of the ordinary girl Giselle and the noble Albert. Can the generous heart to forgive the betrayal? Can pure love to conquer death again?
The original idea of the composer and choreographer, which has shared over a half century, is joining by dance theatre “Kyiv Modern Ballet“. Magical music, the expressive costumes of Anna Ipatieva and the most talented Ukrainian dancers revive an old beautiful legend.
