A remarkable collective effort… from a company on flying form” The Daily Telegraph 


Following its critically acclaimed run at the London Coliseum in January, English National Ballet tour Mary Skeaping’s Giselle to the Grand Opera House, Belfast from the 21-24 June 2017, making the company’s first ever visit to Northern Ireland.


A haunting story of innocence and betrayal, and a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love, Mary Skeaping’s Giselle features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images. Adolphe Adam’s classic score is performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.


English National Ballet is presenting two versions of Giselle this season. Mary Skeaping’s classic production of the iconic ballet follows Akram Khan’s contemporary reinterpretation which had its world premiere earlier in the season, and returns to Sadler’s Wells in September 2017.


Tickets for Giselle at the Grand Opera House, Belfast go on sale at 10amMonday 30 January 2017.
