Giselle is one of the first large ballets of the romantic period, and one of the few works of that era to have survived to the present day. An idyllic country village is the setting for a naive girl’s first love and her betrayal, which is followed by madness, death, and a painfully beautiful world populated by the Wilis, female spirits who, jilted before their wedding day, rise from their graves at night and seek revenge upon men.
