Bolshoi Season Opens at Players

PETERBOROUGH, New Hampshire (October 5, 2015) The Peterborough Players’ Arts on Screen 2015-2016 Series is thrilled to bring the intense and romantic beauty of GISELLE, performed and broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, to Peterborough this Sunday, October 11th at 1p.m.

This treasure of romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in classical repertoire, touching upon the great romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy, and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.

The young peasant girl Giselle dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her own will, she joins the vengeful spirits, who now turn against Albrecht and condemn him to dance until he dies of exhaustion.

The Peterborough Players’ Arts on Screen series is presented in stunning NEC high definition digital projection and incomparable Dolby® Surround Sound. The Bolshoi Live series is presented live from Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre. Bolshoi Live audiences also receive extras: dancer & choreographer interviews plus behind-the-scenes video of the production.
