Dir. Akram Khan | Liverpool Empire | Recorded October 2017 | 113 min (inc. 10 min interval) | U

"Giselle  has  been  transformed  for  the  ENB  by  Akram  Khan  into  the  ballet  event  of  the  year.  Staggeringly  beautiful  and  utterly  devastating,  it  is  an  electrifying  triumph  which  any  dance  or  theatre  fan  must  not  miss." The  Independent 

"Akram  Khan’s  stunning  re-imagining  is  destined  to  become  a  contemporary  classic." The  Daily  Express

Hailed as 'a masterpiece of 21st century dance' from English National Ballet, Akram Khan’s Giselle comes to The Poly, recorded live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017. 

One of the greatest romantic ballets, Giselle has been re-imagined by celebrated choreographer Akram Khan with Artistic Director and Lead Principal of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. 

With staging and costumes by Academy Award-winning Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), the ballet has won an Olivier Award and the South Bank Sky Arts Award for English National Ballet, received rapturous 5-star reviews and was sold out when performed at London’s Sadler’s Wells. Filmed live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017, Akram Khan’s Giselle is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon.

Tickets: £11 adult / £9 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
