Falling in love with Giselle balletclass

Giselle is the beautiful tragic and romantic story of a the young peasant girl named Giselle and the disguised nobleman named Albrecht. Albrecht falls in love, but when his true identity is revealed by his rival, Hilarion, Giselle goes mad and dies of heartbreak.

Act II is mystical and otherwordly and commonly referred to as the White Act as it includes white costumes and it is full of spirits in a dream-like state. 

After her death, Giselle is summoned from her grave into the vengeful, deadly sisterhood of the Wilis, the ghosts of unmarried women who died after being betrayed by their lovers and take revenge in the night by dancing men to death by exhaustion.
Led by Myrtha, the Queen of the Wilis, they target Albrecht when he comes to mourn at Giselle’s grave, but her great love frees him from their grasp. 

Premiere 28 June 1841 Paris, France
Choreography: Jean Corvallis, Jules Perrot
Music: Adolphe Adam

Mirella is well known for making famous romantic repertoire accessible for the intermediate (non-professional) ballet student.
