Studio West Dance Theatre presents Giselle

buy tickets

 

Studio West Dance Theatre presents the Olympia premier of the supernatural, time-honored classic, Giselle – the preeminent example of 19th-century balletic Romanticism.  Giselle, a beautiful peasant girl, is deceived in love by the aristocrat Albrecht, disguised as a commoner.  Audiences will be moved by the ethereal beauty of this ballet as love, betrayal, and forgiveness play out with stunning simplicity.  Giselle is to ballet, as Hamlet is to the stage, or Romeo & Juliet is to romantic tragedy.

Music composed by Adolphe Adam, with choreography honoring Marius Petipa’s 1884 staging.

Guest artists include Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist, Joshua Grant, dancing the role of Albrecht; and Nathan Cook, director of Washington Contemporary Ballet, as the infatuated Hilarion.
