CND will premiere Giselle at Teatro de la Zazuela, on December 2020Compañía Nacional de Danza will premiere Giselle, its large production of the season, at the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid from December 9th to 22nd, 2020. Under the Artistic Direction and with Choreography and Staging by Joaquín De Luz, CND will present the world premiere of a Giselle viewed through the lens of Spanish romanticism and inspired by the poems of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer. "For this new version offered by Compañía Nacional de Danza our wish was to envisage a Giselle viewed through the lens of Spanish romanticism: inspired by Bécquer’s poetry, we will dance the story of this maiden in love with the handsome foreign traveller whom she will love even beyond death. Without dropping any of the elements that have placed this piece among the summits of classical ballet, our Giselle also includes Spanish traditions and the bolera school of dance. And in the woods, inhabited by the Willis—those spirits of maidens who died befote marriage—the wind’s voices whisper Bécquer’s verses. The end of Giselle sees the forces of love and the forces of dance beat both death and darkness. That is the hope that guides us throughout the performance.» Joaquín De Luz - Borja Ortiz de Gondra Program: Giselle - ballet in two acts Choreograpy and staging: Joaquín De Luz Choreography: Joaquín De Luz (after the original by Jules Perrot and Jean Coralli) Music: Adolphe-Charles Adam (musical version: Joaquín De Luz and Oliver Díaz) Musical Direction: Oliver Díaz Booklet: Borja Ortiz de Gondra and Joaquín De Luz (after the original by Jules Henry Vernoy and Theóphile Gautier) Dramaturgy: Borja Ortiz de Gondra Set Design: Ana Garay Costume Design: Rosa García Andújar Lighting Design and Video Creation: Pedro CHamizo Sound space: Víctor Tomé Voices-over: Pedro Alonso and Ángela Cremonte Guests Dancers: Elisa Badenes and Gonzalo García Assistant to Set Designer: Isi López-Puget Assistant to Costume Designer: Lucía Celis Set construction: Proescen Wardrobe: D’Inzillo Sweet Mode Hair and wigs: Mª Jesús Reina Atrezzo: Carlos del Tronco and Palomia Bravo Phonographic Recording Production: Fernando Arias (Aria Classica) Duration: 2h Orchestra: ORCAM.
