The spectator's moment: Giselle

The spectator's moment: Giselle

Giselle

First performed at the Paris Opéra on 28 June 1841 as a two-act "ballet-pantomime" and hailed by ballet historians as the oldest surviving exampl of a ballet that owes its origins to the work of a global collective.
As the archetypal Romantic ballet, Giselle revolves aroun the traditional motif of the love that triumphs over death, a motif that can be traced back to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice and that was to culminate in the later 19th century in the music dramas of Wagner.
The plot, in outline, is as follows. Giselle is an innocent and naïve young girl from the country.

Coralli, Jean

Jean Coralli, original name in full Giovanni Coralli Peracini (born January 15, 1779, Paris, France—died May 1, 1854, Paris), French dancer and choreographer who was ballet master of the Paris Opéra and who, with Jules Perrot, created the Romantic ballet "Giselle".

Coralli received his early training in Paris from Pierre Gardel or Jean-François Coulon and made his debut at the Paris Opéra in 1802. In 1806–07 he produced five ballets at the Court Opera in Vienna, and in 1808 he was appointed principal dancer at La Scala in Milan.

Coralli spent the rest of his career in Paris. In 1825 he became ballet master at the Porte-Saint-Martin Theatre, a commercially run house with a reputation as an alternative arena for dance.

In 1831, following the privatization of the Opéra after the Revolution of 1830, Coralli succeeded Jean-Louis Aumer as ballet master, a post he was to hold until 1850. His appointment coincided with the most brilliant phase of the Romantic ballet, and, while he never composed for the renowned Marie Taglioni (who danced exclusively in her father’s ballets), four of the nine ballets he produced during his engagement were created for her great rival, Fanny Elssler, and another two were created for Carlotta Grisi.

Perrot, Jules

French choreographer and dancer, born in Lyon in 1810 and died in Paramé in 1892. Son of the head machinist at the Theatre de Lyon, Jules Perrot was initiated into dance and acrobatics in the city, before becoming, in Paris, Auguste Vestris’s favourite student. He began at the Académie Royale de Musique in 1830, and shared the success of Marie Taglioni in "Zéphire et Flore", "Robert le Diable", "Nathalie ou la Laitière Suisse". He then appeared on stage in different European cities: in Vienna where he scored his first choreography, Kobold; in Munich, Milan and Naples. On returning to Paris, for the first time he presented his protegee to the Parisian public: Carlotta Grisi in "Zingaro" (1840); in London, at Her Majesty's Theatre, he performed the roles of dancer, Ballet Master and choreographer (1841-1848). With J. Coralli he created “Giselle" for Carlotta Grisi (1841); the famous "Pas de Quatre", which brought together Fanny Cerrito, Carlotta Grisi, Lucile Grahn and Marie Taglioni. After an engagement at the Opéra de Paris (1849), where he scored “La Filleule des Fées", he went to Saint Petersburg, where he triumphed at the Imperial Theatre as dancer, Ballet Master and choreographer, until 1859.   

Intransigent of nature, entirely captivated by his art, rather unfortunate of physical appearance (Auguste Vestris, his teacher, advised him never to stay in one place to avoid drawing attention to his physique), he acquired fame through his height, elegance and dramatic sense. Blessed with an extremely keen stage awareness, he performed for the most part in action ballets where dance and pantomime come in succession, seamlessly; he excelled in the art of governing the movements of an entire ballet ensemble which, with him, earned the reputation by which he is known today. He was the first to achieve, in a lawsuit against Marius Petipa, the legal recognition of choreography as work of art.
