Giselle at the Palace Theatre

Posted onPosted on 8th Feb

Ballet Theatre UK are bringing Giselle to Mansfield Palace Theatre on Wednesday, 22nd February.

It tells the tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love.

However, she would soon be deceived as he was betrothed to another. Through despair and desperation the young girl kills herself as she could not live without him.

The Queen of the Wilis, along with the ghosts of young girls who die before their wedding nights, condemns the lover to dance to his death. He can only be saved by the intervention of the spirit of Giselle and the break of dawn, which force the Wilis to flee.

First performed in 1841, Giselle has never lost its popularity with audiences and is considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.
