Renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation, Bolshoi Ballet’s GISELLE tells the story of a young peasant girl who dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her will, she joins the Wilis, vengeful spirits who turn against Albrecht and condemn him to dance until he dies of exhaustion. This passionate ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in classical repertoire, exploring romantic themes such as a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a fantastical world and ultimate redemption through the power of love.
