english national ballet palace theatre

Giselle is a haunting story of innocence and betrayal – a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love.

Experience the emotional power of one of the greatest classical ballets, with this five-star production at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, following rave reviews and packed houses in its London season. Mary Skeaping’s celebrated production has been stealing hearts for fifty years and delivers all the magic, romance and ethereal beauty you could wish for in a trip to the ballet.

Ayoung peasant girl, Giselle, is in love with Albrecht, a Duke who hides his title and his engagement to another. When Giselle discovers he has deceived her, she is driven to madness, and dies of a broken heart. Late at night, the Wilis gather by her grave, ready to welcome her into their fold as the vengeful spirits of betrayed brides, who force men to dance to their death. Will Giselle’s love protect Albrecht from his fate?

From the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to a moonlit world of mystery and menace, Mary Skeaping’s enthralling production features some of classical ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images.

Adolphe Adam’s lush score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic, sets the scene for a “dramatic and heartbreaking” performance (The Times).

Don’t miss the chance to see one of the world’s leading ballet companies and their exceptional orchestra perform this great classic of the ballet canon.
