Presented by West Australian Ballet

A 178-year-old tale of impossible love, vengeful ghosts and the ultimate forgiveness.

With coveted virtuoso roles and an iconic ‘white ballet act’, this transcendent Romantic-era ballet has stood the test of time – maybe because first love and heartbreak resonates with us all.

Peasant girl Giselle, beautiful and innocent, falls deeply for Albrecht, a prince in disguise. When she discovers he is engaged to another, her grief and shock at his deception sends her mad. She dies of a broken heart and her spirit joins the ‘Wilis’ – ghosts of women betrayed.

The revengeful Wilis lure men into the forest and cruelly force them to dance to their death. They have set their eyes on Albrecht, and Giselle must summon all within her to save him from this terrible fate.

The stunning classical costumes and atmospheric sets will spirit you away to an idyllic time and place, while West Australian Symphony Orchestra bring every emotion to life as they masterfully present Adolphe Adam’s score.
