Coastal City Ballet Presents: GISELLE



Coastal City Ballet brings the traditional classic “Giselle” to Vancouver audiences. After the tremendous success of The Sleeping Beauty in 2023, Coastal City Ballet presents the highlight of the 2023/2024 season: the illustrious and beloved ballet “Giselle”, on May 10th at The Vancouver Playhouse and June 7th at Surrey Arts Centre.

Since its Paris premiere in 1841, Giselle has been hailed as one of the greatest romantic ballets of all time. The ballet tells the story of a young peasant girl, Giselle, who is in love with the nobility born Albrecht in disguise as a lowly villager. After learning of Albrecht’s deception, Giselle is left heartbroken. The betrayal drives Giselle to madness, and she dies of a broken heart. Act 2 opens in the moonlit realm of the Wilis, vengeful spirits of betrayed brides. The Wilis rise from their graves at midnight to exact their revenge on men by dancing them to death. In a heartfelt display of forgiveness Giselle saves her beloved Albrecht from certain death.

Coastal City Ballet’s Giselle features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images. The diverse talents of Coastal City Ballet along with the beautiful score of Adolphe Adam, glorious costumes and imaginative sets bring this heart wrenching love story to life. This full-length masterpiece is definitely one not to be missed.
