English Youth Ballet presents an appealing and dramatic production of Giselle set on an English country estate with an ‘upstairs downstairs flavour’ about a young girl who is betrayed by the Prince Albert who is also engaged to Lady Bathilde. This leads to a macabre, ghoulish scene dominated by Wilis who are young women gilted in love and who rise from their graves at night and take revenge on any man who crosses their path. With enchantingly sumptuous costumes, pretty scenery and spectacular dancing the production brings Giselle into this century with warmth, colour and drama.
The policy of the English Youth Ballet is to perform full length productions of classical ballets in the regional theatres of the UK, and to give young dancers an opportunity to perform within a professional setting. English Youth Ballet boasts sell-out performances last year and the Company brings their beautiful new production of Giselle to St. George’s Hall Bradford.
