On April 1 and 2, the Leonid Yacobson ballet company will perform Giselle at the famous Theater Im Pfalzbau, in the the German city of Ludwigshafen.
A state-of-the-art venue, Theater Im Pfalzbau is in great demand among various audiences and has seen active development over the past years, primarily because it hosts the international Open World festival in February and March every year.
This event, which has just marked its tenth anniversary, has been brought into being by the famous theatre director Hansgünther Heyme. Over the many years of managing the theatre, he has not only managed to make the regular repertoire and festival shows attractive to adults, young adults, and children, but has also entered a partnership with a most diverse range of theatre companies, and has made sure that the theatre's and festival's playbills feature the most popular performances and experimental shows, boasting an impressive line-up of playwrights, from ancient and classic authors to today's hippest of the hip.
Theater Im Pfalzbau is currently staging dramas and children's shows, and hosting interesting concerts and stunning performances by dance and music companies from across the world.
In early April, the Saint-Petersburg State Academic Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre will visit Theater Im Pfalzbau with a true gem of its classical repertoire — Giselle.
This wonderful, world-famous romantic creation, with a plot in the fantasy genre and music by Adolphe Adam, has been preserved in Marius Petipa's version, with original choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot.
