The book is in two parts, the first dealing with the original 1841 production, the second with technical and critical aspects of the ballet. Part I charts the evolution of the Romantic Ballet, and then gives a detailed description of the original production of Giselle, including a synopsis and accounts of the settings, costumes and creators of the original roles.

The book concludes with a survey of dancers who won fame for their performances as Giselle and as Albrecht.Hide synopsis
