Tickets Giselle - Teatro de la Zarzuela
Teatro de la Zarzuela
9th – 22nd December
The Compañía Nacional de Danza will premiereGiselle, this season’s greater production, at the Teatro de la Zarzuela from the 9th to the 22nd of December. With choreogrphy and scene direction by Joaquín De Luz, this new Giselle will be looked under the perspective of Spanish romanticism, and inspired by Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer’s poetry.
«For this new CND version we have reimagined Giselle through the lense of Spanish romanticism: inspired by the Bécquers poems, we’ll dance the story of a young woman that falls in love with a handsome traveller, whom she will love until the end of her days.
Without leaving out the elements that make the classic, our Giselle will haave Spanish dance, and in the Willi’s forest we will hear Bécquer’s whispers.
By the end, the power of love and dance will beat death and darkness. That’s the hope that drives the piece.»
