Night At The Ballet: Giselle

Adapted from the ballet by Alexa Chipman

A girl falls in love with a disguised prince who betrays her. Brokenhearted, she dies, only to be reborn as an undead Willy bent upon destroying all men. When the prince wanders into the haunted forest, will she choose to save or slaughter him? Giselle premiered 28 of June, 1841 at The Paris Opera. Composed by Adolphe Adam, choreographed for Carlotta by Jules Perrot, traditional choreography by Jean Coralli. It was one of the first ballets performed fully on pointe in the romantic era. This particular version was based off of that staged by Peninsula Ballet Theatre in the 1980s.

    Does this counts as a drama play? it is for my literature class. But I need the script :( and compared it to the play. I will really like to write an essay about this, I did ballet for nine years and I love ballet, and I don’t want to do a boring essay about Hamlet

      This is an audio drama, which may work as a play, although this particular one is a comedy. I would recommend asking your teacher, and if they agree I can send you the original script for it.

      I definitely feel for you wanting to avoid Hamlet!
