Ballet Fedotov present Giselle, the story of Count Albrecht who in disguise as a peasant romances a young village girl, Giselle, who falls completely in love with him and in turn rejects her jealous admirer Hilarion. Her mother and Hilarion raise concerns over Albrecht, as well as over Giselle’s delicately balanced emotions and health. Their fears are justified with the arrival of an aristocratic hunting party including Bathilde, the Count’s beautiful Fiancée. Despairing and overwrought at this revelation, Giselle descends into madness and dies.

Act Two takes place near Giselle’s forest grave, haunted by the Wilis, the spirits of young girls who were betrayed before their wedding day, and their Queen, Myrtha. They exact revenge on any man who enters the forest by making their victims dance to their death. Both of Giselle’s suitors visit her grave but it is only Albrecht who is saved from death by the spirit of Giselle, the power of her love and the coming dawn.

Featuring principal guest artists from National Theatre of Ukraine,
Olga Golitsa and Sergii Sidorskyi.

Doors open at 6:30 pm
Children 3 and under are free

Please note: Beginning in 2019 Northland has implemented new security measures. New measures include walkthrough metal detection and bag checks. Please arrive early to give yourself ample time and consider leaving personal belongings at home.
