The story of Giselle

Giselle is heartbroken when she discovers that Albrecht, the man she loves, is in reality a nobleman betrothed to another woman. Devastated by grief and her intense feeling of yearning, the young peasant girl succumbs to madness and dies. She joins the ghostly spiritual wilis, young brides-to-be who have died before their nuptials and who condemn men to dance themselves to death.
