English National Ballet - Giselle

Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier From March 10 To 13, 2021

Timeless Giselle

After revisiting traditional Indian dances, sharing the stage with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Juliette Binoche, and creating some of today’s most beautiful solos, the choreographer Akram Khan tackles that most emblematic of romantic ballets: Giselle. He offers a stunning contemporary reinterpretation in which Giselle is portrayed as a modern-day heroine. The characters—migrants, workers, wealthy landlord—played by the virtuoso dancers of English National Ballet, evolve in a timeless world. For them, Khan has developed an ample movement vocabulary, from infinite rounds to eloquent pas de deux. On an imposing set, accompanied by the Orchestre Métropolitain, the performers move us, dazzle us, fascinate us.
