Giselle

GISELLE (Full-evening)

This is one of the most beloved of the great romantic ballets. The second act, with the corps as dancing spirits, is often referred to as a “white ballet.” The ballet tells the story of a lovely peasant girl named Giselle who has a passion for dancing, and when she finds out the man she loves is engaged to someone else she dies of a broken heart. In CBC’s version, her great love saves the life of her true love, Albrecht.
