One of the most influential of all ballets, Giselle is one of the greatest and most popular works of the dance canon and of The Royal Ballet’s repertory. The title role, a study in the transcendental power of a woman’s love in the face of betrayal, is one of the most technically demanding and emotionally challenging roles in classical dance. “The Royal Ballet’s revival of Giselle provides the succulent spectacle of a world-class company at the top of its game.” —The Telegraph
