The romantic classic Giselle gets a Cuban twist and comes to vibrant life courtesy of the acclaimed Ballet San Jose, now performing under its brand-new moniker: Silicon Valley Ballet. This production, a celebration of the restoration of U.S.-Cuba relations, is a salute to legendary dancer-choreographer Alicia Alonso of Ballet Nacional de Cuba. A longtime favorite, Giselle tells the tragic story of a beautiful young peasant girl who falls for the flirtations of a deceitful and disguised nobleman. When the ruse is revealed, the fragile Giselle dies of heartbreak, and the nobleman must face the otherworldly consequences of his careless seduction. Ultimately, though, the redemptive power of love overcomes all.
