The Washington Ballet
Septime Webre, artistic director
Music by Adolphe Adam
Love, betrayal, and forgiveness reign as The Washington Ballet takes on one of the world's most beautiful and technically difficult ballets. From the time of its 1841 premiere in Paris, this dramatic and gorgeous ballet has inspired generations of dancers with its tale of a young peasant girl who has a passion for dancing and dies of a broken heart. One of Septime Webre's favorite classical ballets, Giselle has it all--romance, spirited peasant dances, and ghostly spirits.
Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one intermission.
