Théophilé is part of Bathilde’s posse named for Giselle’s librettist, Théophilé Gautier. He is fashionable fabulous and caddy, certainly the most in touch with his feminine side of any man around. He and Ciceri are fast friends and accomplices. He’s wealthy and not afraid to show it, the richer a man is the more butterfly-like his clothing becomes, unlike the peasants he has fully wing tails to his coat which also signifies that he doesn’t need to work. His costume is close to how I first started envisioning Albrecht’s regal attire but with more flair. He may be the most superficial of Bathilde’s group but he’s a bit less wantonly mean than Ciceri.
