Why See Varna International Ballet - Giselle?

BalletDance & Ballet

UK premiere

A tragic tale of love and betrayal set to a haunting score by Adolphe Adams, Giselle's bittersweet beauty will likely bring a tear to your eye when it is presented by the Varna International Ballet in spring 2023, who make their UK debut for the first time in their 75-year history. So sit back and enjoy an exquisite rendering from this first-class company.

What is the story?

A heart-rending tale of unrequited love, betrayal and forgiveness, Giselle uses exquisite style and kinetic grace to tell the story of the titular village maiden. Set in the Rhineland of the Middle Ages, it begins with the ensuing romance of the beautiful peasant girl Giselle and a humble villager named Loys. Unbeknownst to Giselle, her new paramour is actually a young nobleman in disguise, one who is already betrothed to another. A romantic triangle emerges that brings passion, death and eternal love.
