The Royal New Zealand Ballet put on an extraordinary repertoire dress rehearsal last night of Giselle. The ballet is about a peasant girl named Giselle who dies of a broken heart after discovering of her lovers betrayal to another. A group of women who dance men to death, summons Giselle from her grave. They target her lover for death, but Giselle’s love frees him from their grasp. It is a piece of history everyone should see. I’m still in awe of the beauty that was left on stage. Gilliane Murphy whom plays Giselle did an amazing job. It is a must see!
