A year after the Parisian premiere, in 1842, "Giselle" was shown in St. Petersburg, a little later - in Moscow. Since then, this ballet never for a long time left the Russian stage and gained outstanding performers of the title role, whose glory eclipsed the glory of the first Giselle - the famous Carlotta Grisi. At the Bolshoi Theater, this party decorated the repertoire of almost all leading ballerinas. In the last century, Marina Semenova, Galina Ulanova, Marina Kondratieva, Ekaterina Maksimova, Natalia Bessmertnova, Lyudmila Semenyaka danced her. From a beautiful sentimental story about deceived love, Giselle gradually turned into a poem about trust, which was betrayed, and love, which turned out to be stronger than death.
