Harrison James speaks to his role as Albrecht in Giselle


Choreographed by Peter Wright, this romantic-style ‘ballet blanc,’ which premiered at the Paris Opera Ballet in 1841, tells the story of a young peasant girl’s love for a nobleman and her ultimate betrayal at his hands. Giselle’s heartbreak and despair lead to her tragic demise, but she and the Wilis, the spirits of other jilted lovers, seek their revenge from beyond the grave as irresistible spirits of a deathly dance.

First Soloist Harrison James speaks to his role as Albrecht in Giselle.
