[Feeling meta as I type this…]

Tomorrow is the much-anticipated opening night of The Joffrey Ballet’s magical interpretation of the classic Lola de Ávila’s ballet “Giselle.” My parents named me after this ballet and I’ve seen it performed by the Bolshoi and ABT, both amazing.

But being a Chicagoan, and a big Joffrey fan, I’m super excited to see what they do with mesmerizing, charming, and heart-breaking love story. See a behind-the-scenes preview of the lead dancers in rehearsal above— tender, passionate, intense.
