Manassas Ballet Theatre presents GISELLE, the classic, romantic ballet that speaks to the power of true love. It tells the tale of the peasant girl Giselle who dies of a broken heart after she discovers the one she loves belongs to another. In the end, her love for the heartbreaker saves him from a horrible fate at the hands of the Wilis, ghosts of jilted girls known to dance the untrue to death. Giselle, with its colorful act one village scene and wistful, romantic act two, is the oldest ballet in active repertoire, remaining a worldwide favorite since the choreography originated in the 1841. MBT will be accompanied live by the Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra.
