From the link you provided to Knowledge Network:

"Features two of the greatest young dancers from the Royal Ballet peforming this classic romantic ballet. A tale of innocence and redemption, it moves between the human and supernatural worlds as Giselle comes back from the dead to prey on the man who betrayed her."

Usually, the interpretation discusses eternal love, not revenge.
