Giselle, performed by Houston Ballet May 4, is one of the most widely performed works of the Romantic era. It is a journey into a beautiful world of love, ghosts and mystery. It’s the story of a peasant girl deceived by Count Albrecht, her transformation into a Wili (the ghosts of women betrayed on their wedding day) and her forgiveness of her errant lover which results in his salvation. Staged for Houston Ballet by noted Russian ballerina Ai-Gul Gaisina, this production harkens back to the Russian productions of her childhood. Before the performance of Giselle, enjoy a presentation of the famous lakeside scene from “Swan Lake,” one of the most beautiful passages in all of classical ballet, and the spectacular classical showpiece, “Le Corsaire” (“The Pirate”). Pre-concert activities in the Fidelity Investments Plaza begin at 6:30 p.m.

This event is also sponsored in part by Rico's Restaurants. Pre-performance activities sponsored by Linn Energy.

Check out some video highlights of Giselle with commentary from Houston Ballet's Artistic Director Stanton Welch.
