LakeCities Ballet Theatre will present its 2017-18 season finale, Giselle on Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7, 7:30 p.m. each evening, at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles.

Kelly Kilburn Lannin’s production of Giselle features lavish scenery and costumes, soulful music and beautiful choreography epitomizing the pure classicism of the Romantic ballets. Featured in this season finale are special guest artists Sarah Lane, Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre of New York, dancing in the lead role as Giselle, and Steven Loch, newly promoted Soloist with Pacific Northwest Ballet of Seattle, dancing the role of Albrecht.

Giselle tells the story of a young peasant girl who, betrayed by her lover Albrecht, dies of a broken heart. When Albrecht visits her grave at night, Giselle appears and protects him from the Willis – vengeful female spirits who haunt the forest.

Tickets are $30 per person and can be purchased online at lakecitiesballet.org.
