A classic production of one of the greatest Romantic ballets
Giselle is a haunting story of innocence and betrayal, a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love.
Moving from the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to a moonlit world of mystery and menace, Mary Skeaping’s production of Giselle features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images. Adolphe Adam’s score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic, adds to the lush atmosphere.
"The Giselle devised for English National Ballet in 1971 is the best Giselle you are ever likely to see"
The Independent on Sunday
"This production delivers the real thing."
"All the power of the work comes through in this marvellous production. So too does the power of ballet itself."
The Daily Telegraph
"Heartbreakingly fine. The village maiden's poignant story keeps us coming back for more"
The Sunday Telegraph
