Hailed as ‘a masterpiece of 21st century dance’, Akram Khan’s Giselle features Artistic Director Tamara Rojo dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory.

The classic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been reimagined in this stunning new version, with sets and costumes by Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), an ‘ominous, gothic’ (The Observer) adaptation of Adolphe Adam’s original score by composer Vincenzo Lamagna and performance by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
