The story of a peasant girl and the man who deceives her, Giselle is one of the most widely performed works of the Romantic era. This performance is choreographed by Marius Petipa after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, staged by A-Gul Gaisina and performed to music by Adolphe Adam.
Houston Ballet will also present the famous duet from the lakeside scene from Swan Lake, one of the most beautiful passages in all of classical ballet, and the spectacular classical showpiece, Le Corsaire.
