Royal Ballet: Giselle

Certificate
12A
Running Time
135 mins

Peasant girl Giselle carks it of a broken heart when she learns that the love of her life, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Now she finds herself obliged to join the wilis – a bunch of vengeful spirits who condemn Albrecht to a frenzy of hoofing until he perishes of exhaustion.

Peter Wright‘s ever-popular production of this romantic ballet draws on Marius Petipa’s classic version, which was first staged in St Petersburg in 1884. This production was reocrded live in pre-Covid 2016.
