About the Performance

Adam’s ballet performance Giselle belongs to one of the historical references of the period of High Romanticism and it is also one of the most performed works by world ballet ensembles. Since its launch in Paris in 1841, it has kept the attention of audiences around the world – which can be attributed to not only a touching romantic story of the librettists Théophile Gautier and Jules-Henri Vernoya de Saint-Georges, but also a melodic and rhythmic lightness of the music by a major composer of the Romantic period, Adolphe Charles Adam. This ballet performance, which today ranks among the oldest and most charming works of classical ballet literature, will be staged in all its academic purity and brilliance of Rafael Avnikjan. Tickets in the 4th category in the historical building of the Slovak National Theatre have an obstructed view of the stage The price of these tickets is set accordingly; therefore, it is not possible to get reimbursed for the tickets in the case of a complaint about this obstruction.
