GISELLE is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet’s title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertory, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death.

For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless.

In Peter Wright’s production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty.

Katie Mitchell directs a new production of Donizetti’s opera starring Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, and American tenor Charles Castronovo.

Considered to be the pièce de resistance of composer Gaetano Donizetti and performed at the Royal Opera House for the first time in over a decade, this is a theatrical experience that will thrill opera fans everywhere.

In 17th century Scotland, the beautiful Lucia is secretly in love with Edgardo di Ravenswood, who her family cannot bear. Despite their objections, the lovers meet in the dead of night and exchange rings as a token of their love, vowing to marry as soon as they can. However, Lucia’s family have other plans, and force her into an engagement with Arturo – a man they consider more suitable. With deception rife, Lucia and Edgardo are manipulated at every turn, and soon their love is put to the ultimate test.
