The Paris premiere of Giselle in 1841 stands as the undisputed masterpiece of 19th century romantic ballet. Contrasting good and evil, realism and mysticism, audiences were stunned by Giselle’s surreal beauty as, for the first time, ballerinas rose up on pointe seemingly to float above the ground in ethereal grace. Giselle’s universal message of trust, commitment, forgiveness, and the cleansing transcendence of selfless love are values as timely today as in the 19th century.
It is the perfect ending to a Valentine’s day weekend.
