First love, betrayal, heartache and forgiveness … we’ve all been through them, and that’s what makes Giselle resonate so deeply in our hearts. This iconic Romantic ballet has stood the test of time, not just because of the otherworldly beauty of its “white” act, with its ethereal ghosts floating through the forest, but because of the universal passion and drama of its storyline.
A young girl falls in love with an aristocrat in disguise. When she realises his deception, the shock sends her mad and she dies. Raised from her grave by the vengeful Queen of the Wilis, she must summon all her tenderness and strength to save her lover from destruction.
Giselle a ballet in two acts, with a cast of 80 dancers, featuring choreography by Erico Montes (Royal Ballet) after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, set to a rich score by Adophe Adam;. Starring Luzia Lopes (Royal Swedish Ballet) as Giselle, Erico Montes (Royal Ballet) as Albretch & Tatiana Lebedeva as Berthe Giselle`s mother.
