In brief

A tale of love, betrayal, and redemption with peasant festivities and the ruthless and fascinating white-clad Willis: Giselle goes on stage at Shanghai Grand Theatre to stir emotions with its tender story and the sensitivity of its protagonists in the contrast between a sunlit world and a dark, spirit-populated realm. The romantic ballet by Coralli and Perrot returns in the revival of Yvette Chauviré, whose Giselle has exalted classical ballet in all its purity and made her famous around the world.
