What is the story?

Giselle is a beautiful and gentle peasant girl who is pursued by a nobleman, disguised as a peasant himself. But the nobleman finds himself a rival for her affections however in the form of Hilarion, a fellow villager who is suspicious of him. He has good reason to be distrustful; the nobleman is betrothed to marry another. This comes to light during a brawl between her two suitors, during which Giselle dies of a heart attack. 

The titular damsel then joins a group of ghostly brides, who all perished before being married to their loves...her nobleman is devastated and tries to kill himself but can Giselle's spirit and enduring love save him?
