GISELLE (full-length)

Betrayal and heartbreak set the stage in this supernatural story, complete with iconic costumes and breathtaking music. A village maiden, the beautiful Giselle, falls in love with a disguised Prince and dies of heartbreak when he betrays her. After death, she joins the “Wilis”, maidens who died before their wedding day and force men to dance to death. Considered one of the world’s most beloved romantic ballets, GISELLE has remained part of the repertory of every major ballet company in the world for more than 175 years.
