The Russian National Ballet will perform “Giselle” at Queensborough Community College’s performing arts center on March 17.
“Giselle,” which is considered the consummate Romantic ballet, will perform at 3 p.m.
The ballet tells the story of a peasant girl who falls in love with a prince and the heartbreak and despair that follow.
“Surrender your heart to the ultimate ballet of the Romantic era,” said Susan Agin, the executive and artistic director of Queensborough Performing Arts Center.
Agin said a ballerina must have near perfect technique, outstanding grace and great dramatic skills to land the role of Giselle.
The ballet’s score is Adolphe Adam, while its choreography is courtesy of Marius Petipa.

Queensborough Community College’s performing arts center is located at 222-05 56th Ave. in Oakland Gardens.
