Well-known Russian director Alexander Pepelyayev, whose numerous productions, created with the drama students of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, have already become a tradition that the audience looks forward to, has now directed a dance performance with “Elmo Nüganen’s class”, i.e. the drama students who graduate in spring 2012. The production is based on the classical ballet “Giselle”, inspired by a poem by Heinrich Heine. It’s a story about a country girl called Giselle, whose ghost protects her beloved one from the revenge of evil spirits after the girl’s untimely death. In the hands of Pepelyayev, a strong avant-gardist, the classical story has been turned into a provocative and youthful new version.
