Giselle is the quintessential Romantic ballet. It transformed the dance world when it was first performed in Paris in 1841 and remains at the centre of the classical repertory. Peter Wright's production for The Royal Ballet, which had its premiere in 1985, has had more than 550 performances. With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet.
