Saint Louis Ballet opens its 2017-2018 season with Giselle, a hauntingly beautiful ballet that’s in the repertoire of all the world’s top ballet companies. Re-staged by Saint Louis Ballet’s Artistic Director Gen Horiuchi, it is considered to be the greatest Romantic ballet of all time.
Giselle is a peasant girl who, upon discovering her lover is betrothed to another, dies of a broken heart. But a group of supernatural women, the “Wilis,” summon her from the grave and target her lover for death. Giselle’s great love frees him from their grasp.
