Directors Roundtable Backdrops

The time period and storyline of GISELLE afford you the opportunity to present the ballet in a wide variety of formats. As the Designer, it is your decision on whether you would prefer to present a “happy” and clean medieval village, or something that really highlights the fact that Giselle, Hilarion, and (presumably) Albrecht are peasants living in a farming village. This choice can be visually reinforced by choosing our bright and airy Belle’s Cottage backdrop, or our Wood Cottage. Both fit into the plot effortlessly, but selecting one over the other allows you to control the tone of the scenery,which ultimately feeds into the ballet itself. The same effect can be achieved by selecting between our Old World Town Square A and B selection. The A version of this ballet backdrop presents a neat and tidy medieval village, while the B version focuses on a grittier version of the same setting.

Once you have moved onto the second act, you have even more options for inserting your vision. Traditionally Giselle’s grave is in the clearing of a forest. Many opt for general woodland scenery, and select something with darker tones. Some choose to change the setting altogether and present a graveyard   or background imagery that hints at the mystic home of the Wilis themselves.Regardless of your vision of the ballet, the right mix of backdrops, scenery,and lighting allow you to put your twist on this long-running show theme.
