The quintessential romantic ballet, Giselle is a perfect fusion of touching characters, a romantic story, and beautiful choreography – from pure classical ballet to folk dances – in a wonderful setting. Performed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet in China, the USA, the UK and Italy, Ethan Stiefel and Johan Kobborg's Giselle has captivated audiences and critics alike.
New Zealand audiences now have the opportunity to see this masterpiece once again, as the troupe tours this signature production to six centres nationwide and a new generation of dancers take on some of ballet’s most iconic roles.
The theatre was still, breaths were held, and there were tears in eyes. This really was a Giselle that provided the theatrical and dramatic opportunity for the leads to shine.
