About the Event
The National Opera Ballet of Ukraine presents on the stage of the Théâtre des Champs‐Elysées: Giselle, one of the most famous ballet of the repertoire. Let yourself be carried away by a show full of magic, action and suspense.
Giselle replaces the initially planned ballet The Snow Queen
Living and working conditions in Kiev, which have deteriorated further in recent weeks, have made rehearsals for the new Snow Queen’s ballet difficult or impossible.
Therefore, the Ukrainian National Opera is forced to abandon this project. Nevertheless, in order to maintain the commitment and support for the Ukrainian National Opera Ballet, and to allow it to perform for the first time since the beginning of the war outside its borders, Sarfati Productions and the Théâtre des Champs‐Elysées, with the Ukrainian National Opera management, have decided by mutual agreement to present one of the great classical ballets of their repertoire, which the Etoiles and corps de ballet have mastered to perfection.
