English National Ballet’s acclaimed ballet “Giselle” will be released in cinemas for the first time in the UK from 25 April 2018. Later this year, the Olivier and National Dance Award winning program will be available for distribution through EuroArts Music.
One of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, "Giselle" is the first full length ballet choreographed by Akram Khan.
The classic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been reimagined in this stunning new version, with sets and costumes 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 and performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic, dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Tony Award-winner Mark Henderson
