Love from beyond the grave . . .
Giselle makes its San Diego Civic Theatre debut in November 2014!
A jewel of the classical ballet repertoire, Giselle, demonstrates how beautiful and heartbreaking dance can be. Set to a haunting score by Adolphe Adam, this Hamlet of the dance world spins the tragic tale of a beautiful young peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of the deceitful and disguised Prince Albrecht. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak. Albrecht must then face the consequences of his careless seduction when confronted by the Wilis: vengeful spirits of spurned lovers who roam the forests for unsuspecting men to slaughter. Giselle’s misguided love for Albrecht is the nobleman’s only hope for salvation.
". . . satisfying from beginning to end."
