Russian National Ballet Theatre lit up Naperville with its "Giselle" production -- by Natalia Dagenhart "I want the ballet world to be given the respect that it deserves and to be seen by more people -- for so many to experience the beauty that I've received from the ballet world," said rising star Misty Copeland, the first African American Female Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. Her words correspond with the mission of Russian National Ballet Theatre, which presented a tremendous production of "Giselle" on Saturday, April 29 in historic Pfeiffer Hall in Naperville. This production is part of the theatre's 2017 four-month coast-to-coast tour of the United States.
