In this episode of "In Focus", host Eden Lane brings you the Ballet Mistresses of Colorado Ballet's GISELLE. Lorita Travaglia's experience with this classic storybook ballet began with Nureyev and Evdokimova at Berlin Ballet in 1978. Sandra Brown's started at American Ballet Theater in 1988. Both of these incredible women have danced most of the roles form corps de ballet to soloist. Lane learns how this extensive experience helps the young dancers capture the unique spirit of "Giselle". Watch below!

Colorado Ballet opens its season with Giselle, October 4-13 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This hauntingly beautiful ballet features choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot and music by Adolphe Adam performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.

The ballet tells the story of a count in disguise who falls in love with Giselle, a beautiful peasant girl with a fragile heart. When she discovers the count's true identity and that he is engaged to another woman, she dies broken-hearted. She becomes a member of The Wilis-vengeful spirits who suffered unrequited love in life and are destined to roam the earth each night, trapping men and dancing them to death. When the count enters the domain of The Wilis, only Giselle's love can save him.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $155. To purchase tickets, visit www.ColoradoBallet.org or call 303-837-8888 ext. 2.
