Benicia Ballet Theatre presents Giselle under the Artistic Direction of Margaret Rose Kenrick. Giselle is a young maiden who falls in love with Duke Albrecht, disguised as a peasant. When Giselle realizes he is betrothed to another, her weak heart fails her. In death, Giselle dances among the Willis, spirits of young maidens who had been deceived by their lovers. They encourage her to take revenge, but Giselle must follow the spirit of her true heart. GiselleÕs artistic merit lives in the balletÕs love story of persons divided by social class boundaries and challenged by the inequalities that divide people due to social stigmas. Honesty and commitment are found to be true values in life."
