Step into the fascinating world of *Giselle*, a haunting ballet that weaves a tale of innocence, betrayal, and the restorative power of love. This classic story develops as we follow the path of a young peasant girl named Giselle, who finds herself embroiled in a forbidden love affair with Albrecht, a nobleman disguising both his true identity and his engagement to another.

As the truth of Albrecht's lie is uncovered, Giselle's heart is destroyed, driving her to the depths of madness. Overwhelmed by anguish and misery, she succumbs to a broken heart and meets an untimely demise. It is under the cover of darkness, amidst the eerie stillness of the night, that the Wilis congregate at her cemetery. These malevolent spirits of deceived brides seek punishment, forcing men to dance until their death. Will Giselle's love be powerful enough to preserve Albrecht from this horrible fate?

The ballet's narrative takes us on a thrilling trip, moving us from the lovely and bright village where Giselle inhabits to a moonlit world filled with mystery and terror. Mary Skeaping's spellbinding production brings to life some of ballet's most tragic passages, immersing the audience in a universe of ethereal beauty and otherworldly images.

Enhancing the theatrical experience is Adolphe Adam's sumptuous composition, which is played live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic. The music sets the tone for each scene, creating an ambient backdrop that increases the emotional effect of the performance. From moments of sweet romance to heart-wrenching catastrophe, the music weaves its spell, engulfing the listener in a realm of passion and sadness.

*Giselle* is a ballet that transcends time, resonating with spectators through its examination of love, betrayal, and the tenacious spirit of forgiveness. It is a ballet that touches the darkest recesses of the human spirit, reminding us of the ability of love to heal even the most severe scars. Witness the creativity and grace of the dancers as they bring this ancient tale to life, immersing you in a realm where beauty and darkness interweave.

Prepare to be enchanted by the haunting grace of *Giselle*, as the story develops via the expressive language of dance. It is an event that will leave an indelible stamp on your heart, reminding you of the powerful feelings that may be produced via the power of dance. Join us as we begin on this journey of love, loss, and the everlasting spirit of redemption.
