Considered a quintessential tale of unrequited love, heartbreaking loss, and triumphant forgiveness, Giselle remains a timeless favorite. Critics and audiences rave that Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie’s staging is most pure to the versions handed down by the masters Petipa, Coralli, and Perrot. A perfect fusion of music, movement, and drama, Giselle has been called “American Ballet Theatre’s best, most moving classical production” by the New York Post. Charmingly rustic sets and costumes draw audiences into the story of the innocent yet noble village maiden—while classic moments such as the Peasant Pas de Deux, Giselle’s hops on pointe, and the ethereal Wilis in white mesmerize seasoned balletgoers and new audiences alike.
