‘Giselle’ Kicks Off Sixth Cinema Season of
Bolshoi Ballet Coming to U.S. Theaters on October 11
WHAT: Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live bring one of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, “Giselle,” to the big screen on October 11, direct from Moscow’s celebrated Bolshoi Theatre.
As a canonized work in the classical repertoire for which the Bolshoi is renowned, “Giselle” touches upon the great romantic themes of 19th century ballets: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy and ultimate redemption through the power of love.
The Bolshoi Ballet takes the viewer behind the curtain during each cinema broadcast with exclusive access to the Bolshoi’s dancers discussing their work on various roles, sharing individual inspirations and what it feels like to dance on the Bolshoi’s legendary stage. To view the “Giselle” web episode please visit the Fathom Events YouTube page.
