Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company
Giselle

Presented by presented by
Venue: Segerstrom Hall Tickets start at $29.00

Overview

When a young peasant girl discovers her lover is betrothed to another, she dies of grief, only to be enlisted by the vengeful Wilis, a ghostly army of maidens who haunt the forests, dancing to death any male mortal who crosses their path. After her beloved wanders into their grasp, Giselle carries out the ultimate act of love to free him from his fate.

La Scala Ballet Company performs the unforgettable original Coralli-Perrot choreography in a revival by Yvette Chauviré, moving effortlessly from the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to a moonlit world of mystery and menace. Adolphe Adam’s score, performed live by the renowned Mikhailovsky Orchestra, helps bring this otherwordly tale to vivid life.
