Event Description

Love conquers all — even death — in this romantic classic. The Moscow Festival Ballet is ready to present Giselle at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center in Bayside, Queens on Sunday, March 20, at 3 pm. Ticket prices range from $39 to $42. Parking is easy in a nearby lot, and the intimate, 875-seat theater is also accessible by the Q27 and Q12 buses. Giselle, which premiered in Paris in 1841, tells the story of a peasant girl in West Germany’s rural Rhineland during the Middle Ages. She falls in love with a man and then dies of a broken heart after finding out that he is secretly married to another woman. The ghosts of other jilted women then summon Giselle’s spirit from her grave and head into the woods, where they dance around men, causing their death. All goes as planned until the ghouls target Giselle’s former sweetheart, and she battles them to stop. Eventually, her passionate affection frees him from their ferocious grasp. It’s an extremely complicated assignment for a ballerina, who has to demonstrate technique, emotion, and a supernatural flair on stage. Sergei Radchenko founded the Moscow Festival Ballet in 1989 with the intent of mixing elements from the Bolshoi Ballet, where he had been a principal dancer, and the Kirov Ballet. The troupe has toured the world ever since. It is currently on a winter-spring expedition through the United States and Canada.
