We open our 37th season, Tales of True Love, with the greatest classical full-length ballet of the Romantic Era. Giselle is the haunting story of an innocent peasant girl duped by a callous nobleman, Albrecht. Forced to face the truth by the lovesick Hilarion, Giselle dies of a broken heart, becomes a ghostly apparition and joins the vengeful Wilis. Adolphe Adam’s music creates the eerie atmosphere where these ghosts of lovelorn maidens lure young men to dance to their deaths. But Giselle’s love and forgiveness finally overcome betrayal and vengeance. Featuring some of classical ballet's most prized roles, our award-winning dancers will bring Giselle to life, and perhaps even give you the Wilis.
