GISELLE: ETERNAL BEAUTY

Posted on 03 September 2018 By Rose Mulready

Ah, Giselle. The heady flutter of first love, the collision of worlds, the hurt of realising you're lover's a liar, the pain of destroying the one that you love - and then the witchery of moonlight, a man battling for his life, unearthly creatures, and a perfect union achieved only for a moment, dissolved by the coming of dawn. It's no wonder this ballet is still going strong after more than a century. We love falling under its spell. Here are some highlights from our recent performances.
