“One of the finest Giselles I have ever seen... A triumph.” Radio New Zealand

When it comes to new takes on classical repertory, the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s critically acclaimed new staging of Giselle is the production of the moment. Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2013, the world-renowned dance troupe brings its expressive dancers to Santa Barbara for a retelling of this timeless ballet. The pitch-perfect production features stirring, human characters; an enchanting, fairytale-like plot; otherworldly spirits and gorgeous choreography – from pure classical ballet to joyful folk dances. The quintessential romantic ballet, Giselle conveys the power of forgiveness and redemption to vanquish the anguish of betrayal and desperate love.
