‘…melancholic and mesmerising.’

Theatreview

 

 

Be spirited away by this haunting tale of impossible love, vengeful ghosts and the ultimate forgiveness.

 

The beautiful and innocent peasant girl Giselle falls for Prince Albrecht, who has sought her affections in disguise. When she discovers Albrecht is engaged to another, her grief causes her to die of a broken heart and her spirit joins the Wilis – ghosts of women betrayed.

 

In revenge, the Wilis lure men into their forest and force them to dance to their death. They have set their eyes on Albrecht, and Giselle must make a choice.

 

Luminous and haunting, Giselle is the most loved of all Romantic-era ballets.

 

Approx. Running time: 2 hours
