Giselle to be performed at Mansfield Palace Theatre

Posted onPosted on 20th Feb

Respected UK touring company Ballet Theatre UK is bringing its latest production, Giselle, to the Palace Theatre, Mansfield, as part of a UK tour.

Giselle is a tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love only to be deceived as her love 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.

Featuring a full corps de ballet of 24 international dancers, along with critically-acclaimed principal dancers, Ballet Theatre UK is presenting the haunting classic in its full glory set to stunning music by Adolphe Adam.

Giselle will be at the theatre on Sunday, 15th March, at 7.30pm.

Tickets start at £14.50 and are available from the Box Office, call in on Leeming Street, ring 01623 633133 or go to
