Do we still expect women to forgive?
Examining the story of Giselle in today’s world.
Giselle is a story of heartbreak and redemption in which a humble woman is betrayed by the powerful man she trusted, only to ultimately forgive him. Sound familiar?

Meet and hear from the stars of Pennsylvania Ballet’s Giselle, dancers Mayara Pineiro and Lillian DiPiazza and ballet master Charles Askegard with a special academic perspective from University of Pennsylvania professor Dr. Liliane Weissberg and Drexel University’s Dr. Mirriam Giguere as moderator.
