The young peasant girl Giselle dies of a broken heart when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. The Wills, vengeful spirits of jilted brides, rouse her spirit and induct her into their clan. They condemn Albrecht to dance until he dies of exhaustion, but Giselle’s true love spares him that fate, and she is released from the power of the Wills.
