Giselle Regional Tour 201322 May - 19 Oct 2013
Her heart broken and her reason shattered, the innocent village girl Giselle succumbs to untimely death. Deep in the moonlit forest, she emerges in the twilight spirit world of the vengeful Wilis. When Giselle’s repentant lover Albrecht visits her grave, only her undying love and devotion can sustain him through the Wilis’ irresistible, deathly dance.
Requiring exceptional technical and dramatic skills, Giselle is a heart-rending tale of love, remorse and forgiveness. Queensland Ballet’s traditional production offers breathtaking, graceful dance, but ultimately it is the emotional depth of this exquisite work that will touch your heart.
