"Giselle" is one of the greatest ballet love stories of all times.

The story is set in Germany during the Renaissance. A young and innocent peasant girl, Giselle, falls in love with Albrecht, a nobleman pretending to be a peasant boy. Giselle is shocked to discover that Albrecht is engaged to marry a princess. She goes insane from grief and suddenly dies of a broken heart. One night Giselle rises from her grave and finds Albrecht surrounded by a large group of evil ghostly spirits who try to dance Albrecht to death. Giselle intervenes and shows the power of forgiveness and the true meaning of love.

Don’t miss City Ballet’s thrilling artists as they bring this magical and haunting ballet to life, staged by Elizabeth Wistrich with enchanting scenery and costumes to Adolph Adam’s melodious score.
