Updated: 2 June 2016
Houston Ballet presents Giselle, a ballet about a peasant girl who is heartbroken after discovering that her lover is actually an aristocrat in disguise and betrothed to another. The ballet is a 19th-century romance first performed in Paris in 1841. This is Houston Ballet’s first production of Giselle in over three decades. The production is choreographed by Stanton Welch and marks the end of Ballet Houston’s 2015-2016 season. Music is by Adolphe Adam, costume and set design are by Roberta Guidi di Bagno, and lighting is by Lisa Pinkman. The production lasts two and a half hours and is presented in two acts with a 20 minute intermission.
