More than even dance itself, Giselle loves the mysterious stranger Albrecht who returns her ardour. On the threshold of becoming a woman, she discovers for the first time the passion and yearning of a love that knows neither mistrust, disappointment nor loss. Yet these nascent feelings are destined to be dashed. Giselle is suddenly confronted with the revelation that Albrecht is already betrothed. Giselle is heartbroken. But is this the end for her? Having crossed over into the strange and dreaded world of the mythical »Wilis«, Giselle resists the temptation to seek revenge or demand restitution. Omnia vincit amor. Love conquers all.
