Ballet Theatre UK

Ballet Theatre UK presents the classic ballet, Giselle.  First performed in 1841 with music by Adolphe Adam, this ballet has retained its popularity with audiences and is considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.

It tells the tragic tale of Giselle, a young girl who falls deeply in love but she is cruelly deceived as he was already betrothed to another. Through despair and desperation, she kills herself as she cannot live without him. 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.
