The Story of Giselle
Giselle is a two act ballet, based on the story of a young woman who dies of a broken heart upon discovering her love is betrothed to another. She is revived by the Wilis, a haunting group of women who died from broken hearts, who make the men who cross their path dance themselves to death. When Giselle's love wanders into the forest, she pleads to save him from the Wilis.
