ROME, February 8 (Itar-Tass) – Russian ballet star Svetlana Zakharova will dance Giselle on the stage of Rome’s Opera House on February 9.
The ballet written to the music of Adolf Aden was choreographed by French ballet-master Patrice Bar who combined the Russian and French ballet traditions. He met Zakharova, the Bolshoi prima, last summer.
Zakharova admitted that Giselle was a special ballet for her in which she danced the title role for the first time at the age of seventeen.
Svetlana Zakharova is well-known and loved in Italy. She made her first appearance on the stage of Rome’s Opera House in The Sleeping Beauty ten years ago. After that, she was regularly invited to dance in the theatre’s leading productions such as The Swan Lake and La Bayadere (Bayaderka). Zakharova is a guest ballerina of the La Scala ballet company in Milan. She regularly gives gala concerts in Italy.
However, the Bolshoi Theatre remains the most important stage for Zakharova. “It will always be my dear and beloved home,” the ballerina said.
