"Giselle" is often hailed as one of the greatest and most influential romantic ballets of all-time.
It will be performed by the English National Ballet, with music by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.
It is a classic tale of love and betrayal, and tells the story of a broken-hearted peasant girl who falls in love with Count Albrecht, believing him to be a lowly villager.
When she discovers his deception she dies of a broken heart, and transforms into a spirit.
The Count then comes across her whilst walking in the woods, and is nearly danced to death by the ghosts of abandoned brides, until Giselle intercedes and saves him.
