Giselle – the great romantic ballet returns!

The 2014 season opens with Helgi Tomasson’s spectacular production of Giselle, the heartbreaking tale of a peasant girl with a fragile heart and a passion for dancing. One of the greatest romantic ballets in the classical repertory, this magnificent production takes audiences on an unforgettable journey, from joyous celebrations in a Rhineland village to a lush forest glade, with its troupes of ethereal “Wili’s” (the spirits of young maidens who must spend eternity dancing away each night until dawn). Upon its premiere, The New York Times said, “Watching San Francisco Ballet’s Giselle, I marveled more than ever at what a haven of classical style this company has become.”
