Ah! Giselle is opening in less than one week! It’s been a crazy, fantastic, dizzying time prepping for Giselle with the wonderful Charla Genn (psst… have you got your tickets yet?). I get the “Wilis” just thinking about opening my all-time favorite classical ballets (pun intended). I want to give you a glimpse of just how hard our dancers have been working to perfect the technical movements in Giselle. Charla and I have been putting them through their paces and the results are exciting to see.
Giselle is a heartbreaking classical ballet that has resonated with audiences for over 150 years. The technical beauty of the dance, the stunning sets and costumes and the “gothic” romance of the story will capture your emotions and leave you in awe. Read more about its rich history and story here. Giselle opens on Halloween—I expect to see a few “Wilis” that evening, on and OFF stage!
