Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky brings a fresh perspective to one of the oldest and greatest works of classical dance. The young peasant girl Giselle dies of a broken heart when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her own will, she joins the Wilis, vengeful spirits of jilted brides who condemn Albrecht to dance until he dies of exhaustion.
