The greatest of all Romantic ballets, Peter Wright’s production of Marius Petipa’s classic, Giselle, is a tale of betrayal, the supernatural and love that transcends death.
Giselle, a peasant girl, has fallen in love with Count Albrecht, who has told her he is a villager named Loys. Her discovery of his true identity has devastating consequences.
Giselle is the quintessential Romantic ballet. It transformed the dance world when it was first performed in Paris in 1841 and remains at the centre of the classical repertory. Although the choreography and designs have undergone many changes over the years, the essence of Giselleremains the same.
With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet.
