Giselle is a dramatic and timeless tale of love, deception, revenge and forgiveness. An enchanting classical ballet from the Romantic era, Giselle was first performed in 1841. The ballet’s combination of dramatic acting, virtuoso technique and ethereal beauty continues to enthrall audiences around the world. Dutch National Ballet's new production, by the creative partnership of Rachel Beaujean and Ricardo Bustamante, is based on the original ballet by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot. With additional choreography by Beaujean and Bustamante, atmospheric designs by Toer van Schayk and a captivating international cast, this Giselle will make a beautiful addition to every ballet lover's collection.

‘At the premiere Tsygankova triumphed: incredible how she uses her rock-solid control to suggest the embodiment of lightness.’- NRC Handelsblad

‘Tsygankova is well-matched by the powerful dancing of Jozef Varga, who perfectly inhabited the role of Count Albrecht.’ - De Volkskrant
