Houston Ballet presents a full-length version of the classic tale of love and betrayal, Giselle.
One of the most famous and widely performed works of the Romantic era, Giselle tells the story of a beautiful peasant girl deceived by Count Albrecht, her subsequent transformation into a Wili (the ghosts of women betrayed on their wedding day), and her forgiveness of her errant lover which results in his salvation.
Choreographed by Marius Petipa, after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, and set to music by Adolphe Adam, Giselle is a haunting, beautiful journey into an ethereal world filled with love, ghosts, and mystery.
Also included on this program is Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s abstract work Clear, a poignant ballet danced to the moving music of Bach. Created for seven men and one woman, Clearshowcases the amazing technical prowess and virtuosity of Houston Ballet’s male dancers.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
