A Jacob’s Pillow & Mahaiwe Co-Presentation

In this brand-new production of Giselle, world renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky brings a fresh perspective to one of the oldest and greatest works of classical dance, giving the audience an opportunity to discover this iconic ballet anew. Ratmansky’s new production of Giselle was singled out as a Critic’s Pick in The New York Times, noting that it “makes us see the ballet anew.”

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema, Jacob’s Pillow Scholars-in-Residence give pre-show talks tailored to each broadcast at cultural partner The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington. Most presentations are introduced by Brian Schaefer, a New York-based journalist who writes about dance, culture, and politics for a number of publications, including The New York Times.
