Following its sensational 2016 world premiere and UK tour, Akram Khan’s Giselle – “a beautiful and intelligent remaking” (New York Times) – returns to London by popular demand for six performances only.

The iconic story of love, betrayal and redemption has been given a haunting reinterpretation, with stunning costumes and set design by Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), and stirring music by Vincenzo Lamagna adapted from the original Adolphe Adam score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
