Giselle is a haunting story of innocence and betrayal – a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love.
A young peasant girl, Giselle, is in love with Albrecht, a Duke who hides his title and his engagement to another. When Giselle discovers he has deceived her, she is driven to madness, and dies of a broken heart. Late at night, the Wilis gather by her grave, ready to welcome her into their fold as the vengeful spirits of betrayed brides, who force men to dance to their death. Will Giselle’s love protect Albrecht from his fate?
From the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to a moonlit world of mystery and menace, Mary Skeaping’s enthralling production features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images.
Adolphe Adam’s lush, detailed score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic sets the scene for an atmospheric and ultimately heartbreaking performance.
