Program for the ballet Giselle at the Opéra Garnier from May 2 to June 1, 2024.

Diaphanous tutus, pointe shoes, white gauze, tulle: Giselle marks the pinnacle of romanticism. In a bucolic landscape, a young girl dies of love and is transformed into a spirit that haunts the forest. Taken in by the Wilis, she enters an ethereal world where dance is the language of the soul. Her lover Albrecht, distraught, pursues this ghost at the risk of his life.

The ballerinas, with their aerial presence, defy him just as they do gravity. The mist-shrouded set reveals spectral visions enhanced by Adolphe Adam's bewitching score.

Premiered at the Royal Academy of Music on 28 June 1841, the ballet travelled to Russia and disappeared from the repertoire before its return to France in 1910. Today, in Patrice Bart and Eugène Polyakov's version, faithful to the original choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, the ballet continues to offer us its magic.
