San Diego Ballet Presents 'Giselle'

May 21, 2022: 8 PM
May 22, 2022: 2:30 PM

Bringing the beauty of classical ballet front and center, San Diego Ballet’s new staging of "Giselle" is a haunting rumination on romantic love and sacrifice.

Traditionally, placed in 19th century Europe, artistic director Javier Velasco’s evocative production shifts the locale to the pueblos and ranchos of Spanish Colonial California. The tale of a simple peasant girl who’s love for a nobleman sparks tragedy takes on new life through the lens of San Diego’s early history. As does the poetic second act, featuring the spectral, beautiful Lloronas, the spirits of young women seeking revenge on the men who betrayed them.
