Ballet Arizona Presents Giselle
February 9 - February 12
To celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend, Ballet Arizona presents the love story of Giselle, one of the most beloved and romantic ballets of all time, Feb. 9 to Feb. 12, at The Madison Center for the Arts.
This ghost-filled, haunting masterpiece tells the tragic yet passionate tale of a young woman who dies of a broken heart. The ballet is famous for the Wilis, maiden spirits who take revenge on the young nobleman that betrayed Giselle.
Choreographed by Artistic Director Ib Andersen, after the original choreographers, Jean Corallie and Jules Perrot, Giselle is an enrapturing work of art that draws audiences in with themes of enduring love, tragedy, betrayal and romance.
Audiences will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions with the professional dancers and other guest artists before or after the show with pre- and post-show chats. Giselle pre-show chats will occur Feb. 9 at 6:15 p.m. and Feb. 10 at 6:45 p.m. A post-show chat will occur on Feb. 11 immediately after the matinee performance.
