Presented by Butler ArtsFest, Butler Ballet

Embrace your true romantic side and join the Butler Ballet in their presentation of Giselle, the story of a simple peasant girl who is betrayed by love, driven to madness, dies of a broken heart, becomes a ghostly spirit, and eventually saves the life of the man that betrayed her. The beautiful score composed in 1841 at the height of the Romantic era by the brilliant Adolphe Adam will be performed live by the Butler Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Richard Auldon Clark.
