Giselle – #61/365

What better way to follow a slap-up fish supper than with a jaunt to the theatre to catch a ballet?

My favourite is Giselle.

Giselle is a peasant girl who falls in love with Count Albrecht, who has led her to believe that he is also a peasant villager, named Loys. After discovering his true identity and, that he is betrothed to another, she dies of a broken heart.

The Wilis, a group of supernatural women, [is there any other kind?], who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave and set about luring the devious Count to his grave. But Giselle’s love frees him from their grasp.

I’d a let them kill the two-timing git.
