Giselle Tickets – English National Ballet

London Coliseum, London
11 January 2024 - 21 January 2024

Mary Skeaping’s sumptuous production of Giselle returns to the London Coliseum this January.

Giselle is a haunting story of innocence and betrayal – a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love.

From the sunny optimism of Giselle’s idyllic village life to a moonlit world of mystery and menace, Mary Skeaping’s enthralling production for English National Ballet features some of ballet’s most dramatic scenes and otherworldly images.

Adolphe Adam’s lush score, performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic, sets the scene for an atmospheric and ultimately heartbreaking performance.

English National Ballet’s Giselle plays at the London Coliseum from 11 to 21 January 2024.

What's the story of Giselle - English National Ballet?

A young peasant girl, Giselle, is in love with Albrecht, a Duke who hides his title and his engagement to another. When Giselle discovers he has deceived her, she is driven to madness, and dies of a broken heart. Late at night, the Wilis gather by her grave, ready to welcome her into their fold as the vengeful spirits of betrayed brides, who force men to dance to their death. Will Giselle’s love protect Albrecht from his fate?
