Provincial Living - - Entertainment -

Hav­ing gripped au­di­ences the world over since it first pre­miered in 1841 in Paris, Giselle’s tragic story of love, mad­ness and be­trayal is played out in se­cret trysts and ghostly vi­sions across two spec­tac­u­lar acts. Af­ter win­ning crit­i­cal ac­claim on the in­ter­na­tional stage, The Aus­tralian Bal­let’s land­mark pro­duc­tion of this quin­tes­sen­tial Ro­man­tic bal­let will be tour­ing Aus­tralia for the first time since 2006. Giselle is the sig­na­ture work of Maina Giel­gud and is brought to life by cel­e­brated de­signer Peter Farmer’s at­mo­spheric cos­tumes and sets, as well as the melodic and charm­ing score orig­i­nally cre­ated in 1841 by French com­poser Adolphe Adam.
