Reflections on Giselle

Giselle is one of the most dramatic ballets that a ballerina can be privileged enough to dance in, and also one of the most exhausting roles. It’s a story of love so strong that it causes a girl to go mad and dies of a broken heart. It also causes her to rise from the grave and save the same man who wronged her.
