Performances
Giselle
Giselle is a beautiful and moving classic ballet about a lively and happy village girl who charms everyone around her – including Albrecht, a nobleman who’s so entranced that he disguises himself as a peasant to court her. His seemingly innocent deception leads to a tragedy that shakes the whole village.
