Giselle is a romantic ballet that tells of the power of true love; spins the myth of a peasant girl who dies of a broken heart when she finds out that her lover, Albrecht, is betrothed to another. The Wilis, spirits of the betrayed, led by Queen Myrtha, take revenge on Albrecht by trying to make him dance to death. Giselle’s love frees him from their grasp and her forgiveness frees her from their fate.
