Ballet Ireland presents a new version of Giselle, a haunting story of love and betrayal, choreographed by one of Europe's foremost emerging choreographers, former Royal Ballet dancer, Ludovic Ondiviela.
The ballet tells the tale of Giselle who, betrayed by Albrecht, dies broken hearted - but her spirit returns to protect her now-repenting lover from the Wilis, vengeful ghosts of young women jilted before their wedding day, who dance men to their deaths.
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.
Following Ballet Ireland's hugely successful production of The Nutcracker in autumn/winter 2016, the company are touring with Giselle until 27th May with this new Irish production performed by an international cast of world-class dancers. The production takes to the Everyman stage on Saturday 13th May, 8pm. Tickets €26, concession €23, available from www.everymancork.com or from the box office, phone 021 4501 673.
