Russian National Ballet Theatre: Giselle and The Sleeping Beauty

The majestic elegance of classical ballet is a perfect introduction to the spring semester at Krannert Center. With lithe movement, resplendent apparel, and mesmerizing tales, the more than 50 dancers of this esteemed Russian company—which has performed at Krannert Center since 1999— weave evenings of evergreen enchantment. This season, Giselle’s haunting saga and Princess Aurora’s story of love take center stage.
