Love conquers all in the ultimate Romantic ballet

Giselle: The Regional Tour

101 mins in all / 1 interval

Starring artists from The Australian Ballet and graduating students from The Australian Ballet School, this specially staged production will sweep audiences away.

Since its premiere in 1841, Giselle has captured the imagination and torn at the heart. The transcendent love story follows an innocent village girl transformed into a tender spirit after dying of a broken heart. With its hauntingly beautiful ensemble of white tutus, its classical technique and its heartbreaking romance, Giselle is a must-see ballet that’s perfect for the whole family.

The Australian Ballet’s Regional Tour of Giselle finished in October 2017. The Australian Ballet will be hitting the road again in 2018 with Coppélia. DISCOVER MORE NOW
