History of Ballet

Giselle 

A timeless classic ballet

A performance in Two Acts with one intermission.

Total runtime - 1 hour 45 min.

One of the oldest ballets that is still performed all around the world. Giselle is a tale of unrequited love, tragedy, and forgiveness told through the beauty of dance. It is a melancholy story that surpasses all other ballets in beauty, elegance, and grace, making it a timeless sensation that is finally returning to our stage.

As a testament to our mission, IBT's production of Giselle is based on the original choreography performed more than 100 years ago.
