Ballet Theatre UK bring haunting classic Giselle to Horsham

Giselle

Horsham theatregoers can witness Ballet Theatre UK perform one of the greatest ballets of all time this month.

Giselle is at The Capitol on Thursday, March 23 (7.30pm).

It’s a tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love but is deceived because her beloved is betrothed to another.

In despair and desperation, the girl commits suicide.

The Queen of the Wilis, along with the ghosts of young girls who die before their wedding nights, condemns the lover to dance to his death.

He can only be saved by the intervention of the spirit of Giselle and the break of dawn, which force the Wilis to flee.

First performed in 1841, Giselle has never lost its popularity with audiences and is considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.

Featuring a full Corps de Ballet of 24 international dancers, along with the critically acclaimed Principal Dancers, Ballet Theatre UK present this haunting classic in its full glory set to the stunning music by Adolphe Adam.

Tickets for Giselle cost £19.
