One of the few 19th century Romantic ballets to survive intact, this is the quintessential story of unrequited love. Giselle , an innocent young village girl, loves to dance in spite of the uncertainty of a weak heart, and enjoys a simple life in her village. This story follows her through tender romance, heartbreak, death and the afterlife, as she ultimately saves the life of a man who has betrayed her.
Music: Adolphe Adam
