The Music Commission of the Círculo del Liceo hosted the live broadcast of the ballet «Giselle», from the Opera Garnier in Paris.
The ultimate romantic ballet, Giselle marked the apogee of a new aesthetic that saw diaphanous tutus, white gauze, tulle and tarlatan take over the stage. This version by Patrice Bart and Eugene Polyakov (which closely follows Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot’s original choreography) continues to reaffirm the ballet’s early success. Bright, earthly scenes and spectral, nocturnal visions: dance becomes the language of the soul and the ballerina’s ethereal presence seems to defy gravity.
The event started with a short conference by Laura Mas, Director of the Departamento of Classical Ballet at the Conservatorio Superior de Danza de Barcelona (Institut del Teatre).
