★★★★ “Brave and breathtakingly beautiful, sublime, with an exquisite musical score and wonderful lighting design. Ballet Ireland’s Giselle is an absolute joy.”
★★★★ “there are some really stand out moments that will be enjoyed by audiences, I am sure, for a long time.”
A haunting story of love and betrayal, choreographed by Ludovic Ondiviela.
Betrayed by Albrecht, Giselle dies broken hearted, but her spirit returns to protect and forgive her now-repenting lover from death at the hands of the vengeful Wilis. Ballet Ireland’s 21st century telling of this romantic classic reminds us of how it feels to have your heart broken, but still yearn to love.
