Giselle poster
Russian State Ballet and Opera House comes to Dubai Opera with the most romantic ballet in the world, Giselle.
The gravely ill peasant girl Giselle falls in love with the handsome Prince Albrecht, who has been unfaithful to her. When jealous rivals claim her fiancé, the heartbreak is too much for her to bear. Weakened by her ill health and driven mad by despair, Giselle takes her own life. 

After her funeral Prince Albrecht visits her grave. The spirits of women betrayed before their wedding days return to take revenge on their philandering fiancés by dancing them to death. Only Giselle’s powerful love saves the remorseful Albrecht from this cruel fate, proving that love can conquer all – even death.

This is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see Giselle as never before. Former award-winning Bolshoi Ballet Soloist Konstantin Ivanov has created an original production superb set and handmade costumes. 

Giselle remains one of the most celebrated classical ballets!
