Giselle

A defining piece of 19th-century ballet blanc, Giselle mixes the beauty of classical ballet with the early Romantic period’s folk mythology, high emotion, and undying love. When Giselle discovers that the man she desires, Albrecht, is a disguised nobleman—and engaged—the young peasant flies into a frantic madness that wears out her heart. Rising from the grave due to the power of the Wilis, a group of womanly spirits who dance men to death, Giselle joins them in wandering the woods in search of prey. Unfortunately for Giselle, who they find is Albrecht lingering at her tombstone to beg forgiveness.

One of the most demanding roles in ballet, Giselle requires impeccable form and control from the lead as she transitions from a naïve villager to an ethereal spirit. The delicate score, written by Adolphe Adam, sets the scene with glittering Germanic waltzes in the first act’s village dances and sinister woodwind trills during the Wilis’ deadly game.

Ballet Nebraska

As the only professional dance company of its kind in the region, Ballet Nebraska takes its mission to entertain and educate seriously. The company performs seasons of classic works and new favorites, pirouetting through The Nutcracker and mixed-repertory programs at area theaters and on tour. But the ballet’s greatest contribution to the community might be its education and outreach programs. The artists frequently perform at charity benefits, stage productions for students, and hold workshops on storytelling through movement at local libraries, where silent storytelling is a must.
