This Mother’s Day weekend be transported to a world where true love triumphs over deception and vengeful spirits from beyond.
Desire, despair and redemption take center stage as the season concludes with Giselle. One of ballet’s most enduring and celebrated works since its 1841 premiere, it is the story of a young woman whose love survives—beyond death—to save the man who betrayed her. Be transported into a haunting world of secrecy and spirits, and discover why dance is not for the faint of heart.

A free, pre-performance experience with in-depth commentary and multimedia content, Insights will take place 45 minutes prior to curtain in the Troesh Studio Theater at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
