First love, betrayal, heartache and forgiveness… Giselle is a rollercoaster romance and one of the world’s most famous ballets.

This iconic Romantic ballet has stood the test of time, not just because of the otherworldly beauty, with its ethereal ghosts floating through the forest, but because of the universal passion and drama of its storyline.

A young girl falls madly in love with a duke 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 forgive her lover and save him from death.

A marvel of precision and ethereal beauty … Giselle is really the perfect ballet
