Last night we attended a performance of the Russian State Ballet of Siberia at our local theatre.
This touring company were performing 'The Nutcracker', 'Swan Lake' , 'Sleeping Beauty'over the next few weeks, and last night 'Giselle'. A love story ; following a peasant girl's love for a nobleman. Giselle is loved by the villagers with whom she lives. Her mother is a superstitious woman and frowns on Giselle's love for the pretend villager Loys, a high born Count whom Giselle loves.
The dancing and costumes all added to a highly emotional ballet. Lovely.
