About the Event

Giselle with live orchestra
Nina Ananiashvili, Artistic Director

Experience the joy of community harvest dances, and be haunted by a corps de ballet of ghostly maidens seeking revenge in this production of Giselle. Northrop is thrilled to reschedule this company’s canceled April 2020 performance with this timeless ballet centered on a young woman who loves dance more than life itself, and her courtly suitor, Albrecht, who only learns the depth of his love for her after she is gone. Danced exquisitely by a company of dancers trained by the great Nina Ananiashvili, this production features scenery that is by turns delightful and evocative, and accompaniment by Northrop's orchestra.

“Remarkable dancers...a Ballet company unlike most others." (The Washington Post)
