Featuring one of the most exquisite character arcs in ballet, Giselle depicts love and betrayal with heartbreaking beauty. In this haunting tale, a lover’s lie triggers a tragic turn of fate for a young village girl. Mist shrouds the stage as Giselle descends to a realm roamed by ghostly maidens, held captive by a curse that blurs the border with the afterworld. In honor of Artistic Director Terrence S. Orr’s 20th anniversary season, PBT will commission brand-new scenic and costume designs for a fresh twist on a repertoire signature. For nearly a century ballerinas have coveted the otherworldly role of Giselle, and audiences have savored the chill-inducing dancing of this romantic masterpiece. Single ticket sales open Aug. 22.
