Exeter NorthcottCritics Circle award-winning company Independent Ballet Wales present a breathtaking version of one of the most famous ballets of all time.

Featuring the original score by Adolphe Adam and atmospheric costumes and sets, this passionate and dramatic tale is based on the reworking of Giselle by Marius Petipa, with choreographic additions by artistic director and Creative Wales award-winner Darius James.

The peasant girl Giselle is driven to kill herself when she discovers that her youthful lover ‘Loys’ is in reality Count Albrecht, and not free to marry her. She rises from the dead to prey on the man who has betrayed her. But as Albrecht, repenting, visits her moonlit grave, Giselle protects him from the deathly touch of her phantom sisters until the dawn sees him safe once more.
