The young peasant girl Giselle dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her.
Against her own will, she joins the wilis, vengeful spirits who now turn against Albrecht and condemn him
to dance until he dies of exhaustion. This treasure of romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in
classical repertoire, touching upon the great romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a
dive into fantasy and ultimate redemtion through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its
intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.
