Seduction. Deception. Madness! Giselle, a masterwork of the 19th century, is technically difficult and wildly emotional.
Love has gone all wrong, and Giselle’s extraordinary music, choreography, costumes and sets transport you to a magical world where spectral maidens, a vengeful queen and a peasant girl embody heartbreaking loss and triumphant forgiveness.
Saint Louis Ballet’s artistic and technical growth in recent years is exemplified in this magical and ghostly ballet, with live accompaniment by the talented Chamber Music Society of Saint Louis.
