KL Dance Works Production ‘Giselle’
Giselle is the classic ballet of the Romantic era. It transformed the dance world when it was first performed in Paris in 1841 and remains at the centre of the classical repertory
The peasant girl Giselle discovers the true identity of her lover Albrecht – and that he is promised to another. Giselle dies of a broken heart. The Wilis, a group of supernatural women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover but Giselle’s great love frees him from their quest.
