When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies in his arms of a broken heart. While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a vengeful spirit meant to make unfaithful men dance until death. Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova personifies this ultimate ballerina role in the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht, in this chilling, yet luminous ballet that has captivated audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi.
