Vienna Festival Ballet's traditional staging, by Nicholas Beriosoff, of this 1841 masterpiece moves from the sunny optimism of Giselle's idyllic village life to a ghostly, moonlit world of mystery and menace. Giselle, a young peasant girl is in love with a handsome Duke Albrecht, but when she discovers that he has deceived her, the heartbroken Giselle is driven to madness and death. By Giselle's grave in a mist-wreathed forest glade, vengeful spirits of abandoned brides led by Queen Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis, force men to dance to their death. Giselle, cannot bear to see her true love, Albrecht, consigned to such a fate and returns as a ghost to save him. However as dawn breaks, Queen Myrtha loses her power and as the sun starts to rise the Wilis are forced back into their graves. After a final farewell, Giselle and Albrecht are parted forever.
