Giselle

Akram Khan has been a regular visitor to Luxembourg over the past ten years, returning periodically to showcase his latest production. Giselle – a gargantuan piece featuring 46 dancers in one of the most romantic works of the classical repertoire – is the result of a collaboration between the choreographer, the English National Ballet and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra. The ballet itself, which was composed by Frenchman Adolphe Adam in 1841, is brought right up to date here by Vincenzo Lamagna, with the wonderful costumes and sets created by Tim Yip and lighting by Mark Henderson, creating a sinister Gothic world that lends itself perfectly to this story of love and redemption. The world of the migrant workers has provided Akram Khan with the perfect setting for this new classic.
