Paris Opera Ballet: GISELLE

Synopsis

The ultimate romantic ballet, Giselle follows an innocent peasant girl, tricked into love with a duplicitous Count, who transforms into a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death at the hands of the vengeful Willis. The ballet marked the apogee of a new aesthetic that saw diaphanous tutus, white gauze, tulle and tarlatan take over the stage. The Willis bring the illusion of immateriality to this ghostly transfiguration of a tragedy.

First performed at the Académie royale de Musique in 1841, the ballet travelled to Russia, then temporarily disappeared until 1910.

Today’s version – which closely follows Coralli and Perrot’s original choreography – continues to reaffirm the ballet’s early success. Bright, earthly scenes and spectral, nocturnal visions: dance becomes the language of the soul and the ballerina’s ethereal presence seems to defy gravity.
