Love. Betrayal. Redemption. Ballet Ireland present romantic classic Giselle.
A haunting story of love and betrayal, choreographed by Ludovic Ondiviela (formerly of the Royal Ballet).
Betrayed by Albrecht, Giselle dies broken hearted, but her spirit returns to protect and forgive her now-repenting lover from death at the hands of the vengeful Wilis.
Ballet Ireland’s 21st century telling of this romantic classic reminds us of how it feels to have your heart broken, but still yearn to love.
Choreography: Ludovic Ondivela

Review: “a hugely enjoyable version that will satisfy traditionalists as well as innovators. Like a successful refurbishment of a classical building, you can admire the enhancements, but it’s clear the original structure is holding the whole thing up. The ending is pure romance.” Independent.ie
Review: “Ballet Ireland’s “Giselle” is an absolute joy…it is modern, moving, magical and memorable. And most certainly not to be missed.” The Arts Review
Review: “Ondiviela succeeds in breathing new life into this traditional classic, proving the tale of Giselle still has much to say.” The Reviews Hub
