Highmark presents Giselle with the PBT Orchestra runs Oct. 25-27, at the Benedum Center.
Hope, heartache and betrayal cast their haze on one of the most breathtaking ballets of the Romantic period in Giselle with the PBT Orchestra. A village girl is doomed by a lover’s deceit to a ghostly sisterhood of spurned maidens intent on revenge in what the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette calls a “bewitching and beguiling dance with death.” Audiences will lose themselves among the mist and supernatural beauty of the fascinating scenery, story and score by Adolphe Adam.
Choreography: Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot
Music: Adolphe Adam
