As the curtain rises, dancers in shadow push against a forbidding wall. From that moment on, Akram Khan’s Giselle stuns with powerful images.
Mesmerising choreography, atmospheric lighting by Mark Henderson and a towering set by Academy Award winner Tim Yip conjure up a condemned factory and the vengeful ghosts that appear in its shadows.
The ominous score by Vincenzo Lamagna – adapted from the original by Adolphe Adam and performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic – intensifies the story’s emotional impact.
See the greatest romantic ballet and its story of love, betrayal, and redemption, boldly reimagined.
