Festival Ballet Theatre reprises its much acclaimed 1993 production of this timeless romance, with American Ballet Theatre principal dancers Gillian Murphy and Cory Stearns guest starring in the lead roles, backed by Festival's accomplished company. Set to a hauntingly beautiful score by Adolphe Adam, Giselle spins the tragic story of a beautiful young peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of the deceitful and disguised nobleman Albrecht. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak, and Albrecht must face the consequences of his careless seduction through the dance of the otherworldly Willis. Ultimately, though, the redemptive power of love overcomes all. Learn More
