Peter Wright's production for the ROH of Marius Petipa's classic story of betrayal and supernatural. Filmed in 2014.
Giselle, a peasant girl, has fallen in love with Count Albrecht, who has told her he is a villager named Loys. Her discovery of his true identity has devastating consequences. Giselle kills herself. Distraught, Albrecht wanders the forests – and discovers that Giselle has become one of the Wilis, shades of young women who died before their wedding day. The Wilis dance all men that come across their path to death; but Giselle intercedes on Albrecht’s behalf. Her forgiveness saves Albrecht and releases her from the Wilis, so that she may finally rest in peace.
