Akram Khan’s Giselle · English National Ballet · UK Tour 2016/17

Choreographer Akram Khan creates a brand new version of the iconic romantic ballet Giselle for English National Ballet.The classic story of love, betrayal and redemption is given a new interpretation, with Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creating a stunning set design, and composer Ben Frost adapting the original score, which will be performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.“Giselle is a ballet that lives in both the real and spiritual world: this is why I thought it would be particularly appropriate for Akram Khan, whose work often represents those two worlds” says Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of English National Ballet.
