March 13-22, 2015
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Giselle is the journey through a young girl’s heart.

Your passage begins as a love story, carried along on the irresistible joy of Giselle’s infatuation with a nobleman disguised as a commoner. The classic tale then changes course, becoming one of heartbreak, tears, and retribution… that ultimately leads to forgiveness. This stunning production from Kansas City Ballet Artistic Director Devon Carney honors the traditions of one of the dance world’s true masterpieces.
