The greatest of all Romantic ballets, Marius Petipa’s classic, Giselle, is a timeless tale of innocence, betrayal, the supernatural and the redemptive power of love.
Giselle, a young peasant girl, has fallen in love with Count Albrecht, who has told her he is a villager named Loys, masking his nobility and his engagement to another. Her discovery of his true identity has devastating, fateful consequences – for both the living and the dead.
The quintessential Romantic ballet, Giselle is transported to Mary Skeaping’s striking moonlit world of mystery and menace, and features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images.
