Les théâtre de la Ville, Luxembourg, Luxembourg
The iconic ballet, reimagined.
Following its sensational 2016 world premiere and UK tour, Akram Khan’s Giselle is performed in Auckland and Dublin for the first time.
One of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, Giselle is the first full length ballet choreographed by Akram Khan.
The classic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been reimagined in this stunning new version, with sets and costumes by Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), an ‘ominous, gothic’ (The Observer) adaptation of Adolphe Adam’s original score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna and performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic, dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Tony Award-winner Mark Henderson.
English National Ballet and Akram Khan previously collaborated together on the award-winning piece Dust, part of the Lest We Forget programme.
