You won't want to miss the chance to see this masterpiece once again, as the RNZB tours this signature production to six centres nationwide and a new generation of dancers take on some of ballet's most iconic roles.
Giselle is a brilliantly balanced fusion of the many elements which make ballet so special: emotional depth, human characters, romance, and beautiful choreography – from pure classical ballet to folk dances – in a stunning, ghostly setting. It is one of the most beloved ballets ever created.
Conducted by Principal Conductor Hamish McKeich, Adolphe Adam's lyrical score will be performed live in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch with a specially recorded version in all other centres.
You won't want to miss it.
