Music Worcester has been fortunate to have had a great relationship with two Russian ballet companies in recent years, the Moscow Festival Ballet and the Russian National Ballet Theatre. They alternate each year performing in Worcester. This will be a single performance at the gorgeous Hanover Theatre and a sell-out is expected. The ballet is about a peasant girl named Giselle who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. The Wilis, a group of supernatural women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover for death, but Giselle's still passionate love for him frees him from their grasp.
"Their gracefulness, perfect edges and lines demonstrate why the ballet, like opera, is such a powerful art form. You can feel the emotion in your seat without anyone saying a word...."
