Segerstrom Center for the Arts welcomes Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company in an exclusive West Coast engagement performing Giselle, July 28 – 30, 2017 in Segerstrom Hall.
One of the finest examples of romantic ballet, Giselle is the tale of love, betrayal and redemption between the peasant girl Giselle and Prince Albrecht. It was a triumph at its world premiere in 1841, and its beloved choreography in La Scala’s elegant production, especially, continues to thrill audiences. The opening night cast for this Center engagement includes ballet superstar Misty Copeland in the title role with Roberto Bolle, making his Center debut as Prince Albrecht. The music, by Adolphe Adam, will be performed by the renowned Mikhailovsky Orchestra. The Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company tour is being arranged through Ardani Artists. The La Scala star Roberto Bolle, will also perform with the Royal Ballet’s acclaimed Marianela Nuñez for the Saturday, July 29 evening performance and the Sunday, July 30 matinee.
