English National Ballet Akram Khan’s Giselle
May 2 - May 6
Presented in association with Dublin Dance Festival
The iconic ballet, reimagined.
One of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, Giselle is the first full-length ballet choreographed by Akram Khan.
The iconic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been given a haunting reinterpretation with stunning costumes and set by Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), an ‘ominous, gothic’ (The Observer) adaptation of Adolphe Adam’s original score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna, dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Tony Award-winner Mark Henderson.
Following its sensational 2016 world premiere and UK tour, Akram Khan’s Giselle comes to Dublin in 2018.
Co-Produced by: Manchester International Festival and Sadler’s Wells, London
