ABOUT: The Quintessential Romantic Ballet
Virtuoso, mysterious, gentle, and melancholy, Giselle is an intoxicating immersion in the romantic era. Restaged by Leonard Ajkun after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot to the score of Adolphe Adam, the supernatural touch and lightness of the Wilis, and the splendid sophistication of Albrecht, Giselle makes even the music palpitate with her.
