Giselle, the most sublime of all romantic ballets, returns to Joburg Theatre in Joburg Ballet’s season of ten performances from Friday 4 to Sunday 13 October in association with the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra.
A heartrending story of love so powerful it reaches from beyond the grave, the ballet’s exquisite dancing lays bare a tale of passion, betrayal and forgiveness with one of the greatest of all ballerina roles at its centre.
Giselle will be staged by artistic director Iain MacDonald and ballet mistress Lauren Slade. Australian-based SA ballet luminary Dawn Weller will coach the dancers in the leading roles.
