This November Manchester City Ballet brings to you Giselle, possibly the most famous of the Romantic ballets. A story of love so deep, that it transcends the boundaries of mortality to triumph not only over evil powers but death itself. The story is based on ancient folklore, tales of the spirits of girls who, betrayed before their wedding days, cannot rest in peace but haunt the forests seeking to revenge themselves on any unfortunate males they can ensnare. This dramatic story of love and betrayal will be brought to you by some of Manchester's most talented and exciting young dancers.
Manchester City Ballet is the classical performance company of Northern Ballet School which has staged a number of balletic productions by eminent choreographers, in a variety of venues, over the last 25 years. Performances by this company of talented young dancers have ranged from triple bills to full-scale classics and have never ceased to inspire audiences.
