Les Theatres de la Ville du Luxembourg, Luxembourg, Luxembourg
The iconic ballet, reimagined.
Following acclaimed performances in the UK, Auckland, and Hong Kong, Akram Khan’s Giselle continues to thrill audiences around the world, and tours to Les Theatres de la Ville du Luxembourg.
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, 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.
