Staff Pick: Louisville Ballet’s ‘Giselle’

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. Well, mostly cry. The Louisville Ballet’s last dance of the season is the time-honored classic “Giselle.” Revisited by the Louisville Ballet’s Artistic and Executive Director Robert Curran and Senior Ballet Master Harald Uwe Kern, the 19th-century dance tells the story of love gone wrong. There are betrayal, forgiveness, death and supernatural figures — all the things we come to expect from a romantic ballet. It is also the retirement performance for Louisville Ballet dancers Helen Daigle and Christy Corbitt.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13–14
