Moscow City Ballet is at its outstanding artistic best. Brimming with some of Russia’s best young dancers, outstanding principals, stunning soloists and a sublime corps de ballet, all underpinned by the dynamic vitality of a live orchestra. Stand-out performances by the Moscow City Ballet dancers never fail to add that magical ingredient of Russian soul.

Carefree village girl Giselle goes mad and dies of a broken heart when her peasant lover Albrecht is unmasked as a nobleman who is betrothed to another. In Act 2 of the ballet when Albrecht visits her grave he finds the spirits of other maidens who died before their wedding day (the Wilis) dancing among the graves in the moonlight. Any man who sees the Wilis dancing is doomed to dance until he dies from exhaustion, but Giselle’s spirit and everlasting love for Albrecht saves him from death.
