The romantic ballet tells the tragic, romantic story of a beautiful young peasant girl, Giselle who falls for the flirtations of the deceitful and disguised nobleman Albrecht. Giselle dies of heartbreak after discovering her lover’s deception that Albrecht has promised to marry princess Bathilde. And Albrecht must face the otherworldly consequences of his careless seduction with the Wilis, a group of mystic and supernatural women who died from a broken heart, have the ability to control men and let them dance until they die.
