Giselle is presented from the historic Mariinsky Theatre in St. Peterburg. The corps de ballet fan away from the viewer and the prima ballerinas dance with stunning realism, giving cinema audiences worldwide a "best seat in the house" experience wherever they happen to sit. Giselle is the story of a simple village girl who falls deeply in love with a dashing prince disguised as a peasant. The idyllic pastoral scene is shattered by an act of betrayal and the ensuing heartbreak. In the ballet blanc second act, Giselle haunts the stage with her host of vengeful spirits, but ultimately the strength of her love transcends even death and bestows forgiveness upon her repentant lover. Starring Natalia Osipova and Leonid Sarafanov. Running time: 96 minutes Tickets are $15 ($13 for members and students) and may be ordered online at clarkart.edu or by calling 413 458 0524.
