English National Ballet: Akram Khan's GiselleDescribed as "magnificently danced" and "a gift for ENB" by Judith Mackrell in The Guardian when it premiered at Manchester International Festival, Akram Khan's reinterpretation of Giselle for English National Ballet updates the piece, placing it in a contemporary setting. Following performances around the world, the production is set to return to London for the first time since 2017 for a limited run at Sadler's Wells. In his first full length ballet, Khan casts Giselle as part of a community of migrant workers turned out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. Set and costume designs are by Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip, known for his work on the hit film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Adolphe Adam adapts Vincenzo Lamagna's original score. In this "intriguingly imagined" and "visually transfixing" adaptation, Akram Khan "uses his 40-strong cast to impressive effect" (The Guardian).
