Tampa Ballet Theatre will be debuting their 2015-2016 season with the production of the ballet Giselle. Giselle is a dark, classical romantic ballet about a young peasant girl who dies of a broken heart after discovering that her lover is engaged to another. The Willis, a group of spirits of young women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover, but Giselle saves him from the wrath of the Willis. This classical ballet will be re-staged by Artistic Director, Lindsay Clark.
Giselle is about a happy young peasant girl whom believes that she is in love and is loved in return. Her name is Giselle. The gamekeeper, who also is in love with Giselle, tries to convince her that Albretch, the man she loves, is a nobleman disguised as a peasant. Albretch is revealed for who he really is, already bethrothed, which causes Giselle to go mad and die. The gamekeeper goes to visit Giselle’s grave and encounters the ghostly Willis, beautiful brides that passed due to broken hearts, where their queen, Myrtha forces the gamekeeper to dance until he dies. Albretch then also visits Giselle’s grave and almost has the same fate as the gamekeeper, but is saved by Giselle in her shadowy form. The sun then rises and the Willis and Giselle vanish, but Giselle remains alive with Albretch – a love stronger than death.
