Miami City Ballet: Giselle at ARSHT

Oct 21 - 23, 2016


Perhaps the most cherished of all 19th-century ballets, Giselle, created in 1841, has never lost its preeminence in the repertory. Giselle, with its own wonderful score by Adolphe Adam, is the ultimate dance statement about the centrality of dance to life. Brought by Miami City Ballet in Program One of its current season.

In Act One the ballerina gets to be a naïve, loving peasant girl who is betrayed by Albrecht, her aristocrat lover. In Act Two she’s a ghostly Wili, raised from her tomb to join her spectral sisters in driving inconstant men to their death — only to defy the Wilis and use the power of her love to save Albrecht from his doom.
