Presented by the West Australian Ballet
Feel the devastation of heartbreak.
Peasant girl Giselle, beautiful and innocent, falls for Albrecht, a prince in disguise. Discovering he is engaged to another, her grief and shock at his deception sends her mad. Dying of a broken heart, her spirit joins the ‘Wilis’ – ghosts of women betrayed. The revengeful Wilis cruelly force men to dance to their death. Setting their eyes on Albrecht, Giselle must summon all within to save him from this terrible fate.
With stunning classical costumes, West Australian Symphony Orchestra will evoke your emotions as they masterfully present Adolphe Adam’s score.
A 178-year-old tale of impossible love, vengeful ghosts and ultimate forgiveness.
With coveted virtuoso roles and an iconic ‘white ballet act’, this Romantic-era ballet stands the test of time – maybe because first love and heartbreak resonates with us all.
