Description:

Love conquers death in the ultimate Romantic ballet. Since its premiere in 1841, Giselle has captured the imagination and torn at the heart. A village girl falls in love with a man who is not all he seems. When she finds out his deception, she dies of a broken heart. Transformed into a spirit, she battles to save her lover in the woods haunted by the ghosts of jilted women. For the ballerina, it offers a career-making opportunity to show off not just technique but emotional range. Yearning, madness, supernatural forces and transcendent, redemptive love: Giselle is the Romantic era crystallized in one perfect work of art. “Phenomenal, dramatic impact.” – NY Times.
