First staged in Paris on June 28, 1841 at the Royal Academy of Music, Giselle is inspired by the traditional theme of love stronger than death, two timeless threads that can be traced back as far as the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Adolphe Adam's musical accompaniment to this classic work of ballet meets with constant admiration from any audience who is fortunate enough to see it. Tchaikovsky himself, a great symphonist and creator of ballet music, described Giselle as "a poetic, musical and choreographic gem". The story, in which two balancing loves intertwine, perfectly reflects these romantic ideas, and this production by the Baltic Opera reveals all these romantic assumptions that remain emotionally-touching in the modern world. Giselle, the waitress, falls under the spell of a handsome Albert who has come to play by the seaside. However, when the girl discovers that the boy is engaged, in addition to being a Warsaw celebrity, she feels cheated and used, and drowns at sea. Who are the Kashubian waterlines? Can you be forgiven by dancing? And what does the wild rose symbolize? The answers to these and other questions can be found in the Gdańsk interpretation of Giselle!
