The Royal Ballet: Giselle A ballet that never grows old, Giselle is once again performed at the Royal Opera House this year, after last being staged here in 2014. First performed in Paris in 1841, it transformed the world of dance and has since undergone many choreography and design changes over the years, although the essence still remains the same. Peter Wright's production for The Royal Ballet is based on Marius Petipa's classic version. The title role is emotionally and technically demanding for the ballerina, calling for an absolute transition from innocent peasant girl - who dies of a broken heart - to avenging spirit, but the Royal Ballet's ballerinas ensure a vital performance each night.

 

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
