The Russian State Ballet and Opera House presents

Giselle - A Romantic Ballet where love takes over the betrayal.

Music by Adolphe Adam

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

After sold-out performances last year, Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with the premiere of the most romantic Ballet in the world, Giselle.

Seriously ill peasant girl Giselle falls in love with the handsome Prince Albrecht, who has not been truthful to her. When jealous rivals claim her fiancé, the heartbreak is too much to bear. Weakened by her ill health and driven mad by despair, Giselle takes her own life.

After her funeral Prince Albrecht visits her grave. The spirits of women betrayed before their wedding days return to take revenge on men by dancing them to death. Only Giselle’s powerful love saves the remorseful Albrecht from his certain fate, proving that love can conquer all – even death.

This is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see Giselle as never before. With original production by Konstantin Uralsky where you can enjoy a new take on the classical Ballet, with new set and beautiful handmade costumes.

Giselle stand out as one of the most celebrated classical ballets.
