26 - 29 October 2016

Choreographed by Akram Khan
Co-produced by Manchester International Festival and Sadler’s Wells, London

English National Ballet are delighted to announce that Akram Khan, one of the most sought after choreographers working today is creating a brand new version of Giselle, the greatest romantic ballet. English National Ballet and Akram Khan previously collaborated on a critically acclaimed piece called Dust as part of the Lest We Forget programme in 2014.

Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip, famous for his work on the hit film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, will be creating a stunning backdrop to the piece, while composer Vincenzo Lamagna will create a new score, performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

For Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of English National Ballet, “Giselle is a ballet that lives in both the real and spiritual world; this is why I thought it would be particularly appropriate for Akram Khan, whose work often represents those two worlds”. Akram Khan agrees: “I am eager to start the creation of Giselle. It is a beautiful and iconic piece, and I am looking forward to bring my own take to it”.

The original ballet is a timeless tale of love, heartbreak and redemption: “It is a story that you find in some way in every culture, the woman deceived who dies of a broken heart, and the spirit of this woman that either forgives or seeks revenge”, says Rojo.

Don’t miss this unique interpretation of the iconic ballet.
