GISELLE
Join Ballet Theatre UK in one of the greatest ballets of all time, the tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love but discovers her lover is betrothed to another.
Through despair and desperation the young girl dies. The Queen of the Wilis, along with the ghosts of young girls who die before their wedding nights, condemns the lover to dance to his death. He can only be saved by the intervention of the spirit of Giselle and the break of dawn which force the Wilis to flee. First performed in 1841, Giselle has never lost its popularity with audiences, and is
considered one of the jewels of the romantic repertoire. Featuring a full Corps de Ballet of 24 international dancers along with critically acclaimed Principal Dancers, Ballet Theatre UK present this haunting classic in its full glory set to the stunning music of Adolphe Adam.
