Giselle - regional shows


#A supernatural tale of passion, vengeance, and the power of love

Experience love, envy, betrayal, and tragic redemption in the celebrated Romantic ballet, Giselle.  

First performed in Paris, France in 1841, this Romantic-era masterpiece is set in an ethereal realm where vengeful spirits dance in the darkness, and love triangles can be deadly. 

Young Giselle is a peasant girl in love with Duke Albrecht, who courts her in disguise as a peasant boy. Gamekeeper Hilarion is in love with Giselle and filled with jealousy. When he finds out the Duke is engaged to another, he reveals Albrecht's deception to Giselle. Devastated, she dies of a broken heart.  

Deep in the moonlit forest, Giselle emerges in the twilight world of the Wilis who rise from dusk ‘til dawn seeking vengeance among men. Giselle is faced with an impossible decision: will she follow the dark path of revenge or save her true love from certain death? 

With luminous costumes, an enchanting score, and exquisite choreography derived from the revival by the world-renowned Marius Petipa, Giselle has held audiences spellbound since its Parisian première more than 150 years ago.  

This tour is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
