Giselle and Loy passionately dance together but Giselle has a fragile health and a weak heart, so she struggles to continue.
Horns are heard in the distance of the village and a hunting party enter. Among the hunters are Albrecht's fiancée, Bathilde and her father.
A celebration begins and Giselle dances with the party. The truth about Loys is revealed and the shock becomes too much for Giselle, she is horrified and weak. Giselle goes mad and dies of a broken heart.
Giselle's grave lies in an unhallowed ground by the forest lake. Her spirit arises from her grave and the Queen of the Willis, Myrtha, welcomes their new companion, Giselle.
The whole group of Willis join Giselle, who are also female spirits and the ghosts of young girls.
Hilarion is grieving Giselle's death and stops by her grave. He is surrounded by the Willis who seek revenge upon men by dancing them to death.
The Willis surround Albrecht and intend to seek his death too, but Giselle manages to protect him. When day breaks the Willis fade away and fall back to their graves.
Giselle's love saved Albrecht which means her spirit can be freed from the power of the Willis. She returns to her grave to rest in peace, leaving Albrecht sorrowing alone.
