She’s young, naïve and distraught after learning her lover is pledged to another. As this fragile beauty dies of a broken heart, will she spare her soulmate a fate worse than death? We conclude our season with the 19th century classic Giselle, one of the great ballets of the Romantic era, featuring some of the most iconic and imposing characters of the genre, The Wilis, and the ethereal corps de ballet work that surrounds this ghostly sisterhood. Called back from the grave by this collection of broken hearts, Giselle must decide between justice and redemption for the man who deceived her. Join us Mother’s Day weekend for the time-tested story of a mad love that turns to madness and, ultimately, forgiveness. If you’ve ever been love’s fool, you’ll relate to this touching tale.
