Giselle

Overview

The Academy is proud to present one of the greatest Romantic ballets, Giselle, for its first time this spring. Giselle tells the tale of a young peasant girl, who after discovering that her lover is betrothed to another, dies of grief and is enlisted by the Wilis, a ghostly army of maidens who haunt the forests. When her beloved wanders into their grasp, Giselle carries out the ultimate act of love to free him from his fate. Featuring students from the Joffrey Studio Company, Academy Trainee Program, Conservatory Program, Pre-Professional and Children’s Divisions, Giselle will be performed in Joffrey Tower's Black Box Theater for one weekend only.
