Giselle, a full-length ballet in two acts, tells the heart-breaking story of an innocent young village girl who falls in love with Albrecht, the Duke of Silesia disguised as a peasant named Loys. Act I closes with Giselle discovering his real identity and that he is betrothed to the Prince’s daughter. Giselle, driven mad with grief, dies of a broken heart. Act II unfolds as Albrecht comes grieving to her grave and is surrounded by Wilis, the spirits of young girls who were jilted before their wedding day and now seek revenge upon men by forcing them to dance to their deaths. Giselle protects him from the avenging spirits, and through true love, saves his life.
