Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami presents Giselle

Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami invites you to experience the timeless ballet masterpiece, Giselle, on February 9th and 10th at 8pm at the Miami Dade County Auditorium. This highly acclaimed production is the perfect opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your partner.

Giselle is an extraordinary ballet, hailed as one of the greatest of all time. Its delicate, ethereal and dreamlike style beautifully portrays the power of love, the devastation of betrayal, and the strength of forgiveness.

Giselle is the story of a simple and innocent peasant girl in delicate health who falls madly in love with Albrecht, a duke disguised as a villager for amusement. Hilarion, a young peasant in love with Giselle, discovers the deception and reveals that Albrecht is a nobleman and is engaged to a noblewoman Bathilde. Giselle goes crazy and dies disappointed. Her death transforms her into a “Willi”, a ghostly spirit of those young women who die before getting married. Men who approach these pure souls again must die; it is the Willis law. Albretch, repentant, goes to visit her at her misty grave, begging her forgiveness for his deception. Giselle, deeply in love, forgives Albrecht and allows him to return to the real world, proving to him the intensity and eternity of her love. 

Giselle will be presented in collaboration with Youth Ballet Company Panama, under the artistic direction of Maria Eugenia Herrera, and Sanctuary of the Arts Choreographic Ensemble under the direction of Rafael Maldonado and Alice Arja, with guest dancers Maria Eugenia Herrera and Gretel Batista, next to CCBM corps de ballet.

Tickets for Giselle can be purchased online or at the Miami Dade County Auditorium box office. Treat your loved one to a romantic evening at the ballet this Valentine’s Day. Reserve your seats today!
