Why See American Ballet Theatre - Giselle?

If you go down to the woods today

Spellbinding and unerringly romantic, American Ballet Theatre once again invite you to join them on a journey to a supernatural world, where one girl's heartbreak knows no bounds, either in this realm or the next.

Wander deep into an enchanted wood haunted by the Wilis. Beautiful yet full of malice, it is amongst these terrible specters that young peasant Giselle finds herself after her untimely death from a broken heart upon discovering her lover is betrothed to another.

Perfectly pitched between Corelli, Perrot and Petipa's marvellous choreography and Alphonse Adams' score, 'the Hamlet of ballet' never fails to entice, either on the first viewing or the 100th.
