“Giselle,” one of ballet’s greatest, is a classical romantic tragedy of loss, forgiveness and love beyond death. Her story is a familiar one – two men are in love with her, but she chooses to surrender her heart to Albrecht, the suave newcomer who, as Giselle later finds out, is engaged to be married.

She always knew she wanted to be a star and has made a name for herself as one of the only Asian-Canadian superstars out there. She has shared the stage with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, 50 Cent, Sean Kingston, Nelly and The Backstreet Boys, making good on the moniker given her as the Rihanna of Canada.
