Giselle is one of the most famous and beautiful romantic ballets of the 19th century. Graceful ballerinas fluttering in white dresses, as if unaffected by gravity... A romantic plot in which the ghosts of girls who died before the wedding fly from their graves and are governed by their one and only desire to dance! And misery engulfs every man who meets them at night... Mesmerizing music by Adolf Adam that makes the listener experience this love story as if it was their own. The great choreography of Lola de Avila, which combines tradition and a unique approach to this legendary performance of classical ballet. At the LNOBT, the premiere of Giselle took place a couple of years ago, and now, during the LNOBT Open Festival, we invite you to admire this ballet in the courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.
