First performed in 1841, this masterwork of ballet’s Romantic era still captivates audiences with a story of mad love that turns to madness… and ultimately forgiveness. Giselle is a peasant girl who dies of a broken heart upon discovering her love Albrecht is betrothed to another. Transformed to a “wili”—vengeful ghosts of young maidens who were jilted before their wedding day—Giselle haunts the forest and inevitably saves her true love’s life. Considered “the Hamlet” of theatrical ballet, Giselle is a powerful production not to be missed!
