As brisk fall winds make colorful leaves dance like ghosts, get your own ticket to see real live ghost-dancers dance like ghosts in a heartbreaking tale of heartbreak and dancing. Today's Groupon gets you a Section A ticket to see Boston Ballet's production of Giselle for $65 (a $97 value), plus a holiday CD (a $15 value) and a free tote bag (a $5 value). From your Section A seats in the Boston Opera House, you'll have the perfect sight-line for appreciating each fouette pirouette and the otherworldly grace of Giselle's arabesque penchee. One of the most beautiful and technically challenging ballets, Giselle combines elegance and creepiness; it's the perfect treat for ballet-lovers and Halloween enthusiasts. (Note: You'll need to provide the Boston Ballet with your email address in order to receive your tickets.)
Giselle is the tale of a peasant girl who protects her lover from the Wilis, a tribe of female spirits who rise from their graves to dance men to death. The ethereal group will haunt you with expert ballet skills, so make your show a pas de deux with a hot date to calm your fears. Going to the ballet will help you impress a lady- or man-friend with cultural savvy and excellent diction, one-up your snooty neighbor with ballet trivia, or relive your dreams of becoming a prima ballerina.
In addition to your Section A ticket, you'll get a holiday CD and a tote bag to tote around a holiday CD. Afterward, you'll be able to practice the dance moves you saw at the ballet while blasting your new tunes while carrying a tote bag.
