Giselle is commonly ranked among the most renowned classical ballets of all time, on par with such ballet classics as Swan Lake and Coppélia. Galina Samsova and David Bintley's fabulous production remains faithful to both the original feel and dance steps of the timeless classic.
Loys and Giselle are madly in love, but Loys turns out to be none other than Count Albrecht and is engaged to be married to someone else. When Giselle learns of his 'dirty laundry,' her broken heart becomes too much to handle. Having slowly descended into madness, Giselle chooses to leave the world of the living behind for good.
In the dark of the night, a sad Albrecht pays a visit to Giselle's final resting place, but he is soon met with the supernatural as vengeful ghosts of jilted brides are summoned to cast their spell. Albrecht becomes cursed and must dance himself to death. Only Giselle's unwavering love from the underworld can rescue him now.
