Be swept away by Tchaikovsky’s ravishing music and Oliver Messel’s sumptuous designs with this true gem from the classical repertory.
English National Ballet - 2018
One of the greatest romantic ballets, ‘Giselle’ has been re-imagined by celebrated choreographer Akram Khan with Artistic Director and Lead Principal of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory.
With staging and costumes by Academy Award-winning Tim Yip (‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’), the ballet has won an Olivier Award and the South Bank Sky Arts Award for English National Ballet, received rapturous 5-star reviews and was sold out when performed at London’s Sadler’s Wells. Filmed live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017, it is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon.
