Marking the end of the season is Giselle, which is celebrated as the unsurpassed masterpiece of Romantic ballet.While Act I depicts an idyllic village scene, the scenery completely changes and a fantastic world of spirits unfolds in Act II.Giselle, the heroine who keeps her single-hearted love for her lover throughout the two contrasting scenes, moves many people deeply and has enjoyed enduring popularity worldwide.This is a repeat production of Giselle and its first performance at the NNTT in three years.

The peasant girl Giselle learns that her lover is in fact a nobleman named Albrecht, who is betrothed to the daughter of a duke, and is so shocked that she goes mad and eventually dies.At night, in the woods, Albrecht visits Giselle’s grave and is almost killed by the Wilis, vengeful spirits; but Giselle, who still loves him even after her death, intervenes to save him from her fellow spirits.
