About

Acclaimed dancer choreographer Akram Khan 'speaks tremendously of tremendous things' (Financial Times) and this new Giselle reimagines the classic narrative ballet for the 21st century.

Giselle has become a former garment factory migrant worker. Albrecht, a member of the wealthy factory-owning class. An abandoned 'ghost factory' haunted my the memory of female migrant workers, many of them victims of industrial accidents, replaces the traditional glade of Act II. There, Giselle's desire to break the cycle of violence will lead her to reconciliation with Albrecht and his release from the retributive justice of the Wilis.

"Giselle has been transformed for the ENB by Akram Khan into the ballet event of the year. Staggeringly beautiful and utterly devastating, it is an electrifying triumph which any dance or theatre fan must not miss." - The Daily Express ★★★★★

"Akram Khan’s new Giselle is a work of immense confidence and scouring anger. English National Ballet dance this Giselle with total conviction, from Rojo’s stubborn heroine to the driven, driving corps de ballet." - The Independent ★★★★★
