BALLET THEATRE UK: GISELLE


Join Ballet Theatre UK in one of the greatest ballets of all time, Giselle.

A tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love however she would soon be deceived for he was betrothed to another. Through despair and desperation the young girl kills herself as she could not 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.

First performed in 1841, Giselle has never lost its popularity with audiences, considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.

Featuring a full Corps de Ballet of 24 international dancers along with the critically acclaimed Principal Dancers, Ballet Theatre UK present this haunting classic in its full glory set to the stunning music by Adolphe Adam.
