Be struck by 'the emotional power and visual thrill' (The Times) of Akram Khan’s acclaimed reimagining of one of the world’s greatest romantic ballets, Giselle, as it comes to Liverpool for the first time.
Lauded by audiences and critics at its world premiere in 2016, Akram Khan’s new interpretation of this classic story of love, revenge and redemption sees Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) create the set and costumes, while musician, composer, and producer Vincenzo Lamagna creates an 'ominous, gothic' (The Observer) adaptation of Adolphe Adam’s original score, performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Don’t miss this unique version of one of ballet’s most iconic stories.
★★★★★ – The Independent
