Ballet Giselle in Valka!

February 5, 2017, at 16:00 o’clock, in Valka Culture house ballet Giselle performed by the Latvian National Ballet!


Giselle by Adolphe Charles Adam is one of the first large ballets of the romantic period, and one of the few works of that era to have survived to the present day.


An idyllic country village is the setting for a naive girl’s first love and her betrayal, which is followed by madness, death, and a painfully beautiful world populated by the Wilis, female spirits who seek revenge upon men.


The original version of Giselle was choreographed by Jules Perrot, Marius Petipa and Jean Coralli. Choreography staged by Aivars Leimanis.
