The most dramatic and beautiful
The most dramatic and beautiful of ballets, Giselle, is coming to Singapore after 25 years – presented by Base Entertainment Asia, San Carlo Theatre of Naples and Ballet Company from Italy
Singapore, February 20, 2017 – Base Entertainment, one of Southeast Asia’s leading presenters of live entertainment, is bringing Giselle, the greatest romantic ballet performed by the oldest theatre in the world, San Carlo Theatre of Naples and Ballet Company from Italy to The Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
Giselle runs for a limited season from 26 April and tickets are now on sale.
Wonderfully passionate, Giselle is a story of how the power of forgiveness and redemption can overcome the anguish of love and betrayal. The story unfolds against the ghostly backdrop of a forest haunted by Wilis vengeful spirits of abandoned brides.
Giselle is often regarded as the quintessential Romantic ballet. The scenario for Giselle was provided by the poet and novelist Théophile Gautier (1811 – 1872) with the assistance of the dramatist Vernoy de St Georges. It contains many of the features that have become hallmarks of classical ballet, including technically challenging pas de deux and solos for the main characters, mime sequences, extended passages of dancing en pointe, and a corps de ballet dressed in long white tutus.
