"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.
The English National Ballet is one of Britain’s four major ballet companies. It is based at the London Coliseum and undertakes frequent tours of the UK and the wider world.
