The quintessential Romantic ballet, Giselle has remained a cornerstone of the classical repertory and captivated audiences all over the world since its premiere in 1841. Peter Wright’s landmark production does full justice to this work’s great emotional power: making the characters psychologically convincing and emphasizing the contrast between the realism of Act I and the other-worldly in Act II. Making her debut as a member of The Royal Ballet in the title role, Natalia Osipova was hailed as “technically and artistically supreme … ethereal and desperately moving” (Daily Telegraph). As Albrecht, Carlos Acosta “partners her with devoted care, and responds to her dazzling dancing with renewed sharpness and attack of his own” (Independent).

“Natalia Osipova, making her debut with the Royal, is, yet again, a revelation. Through the quality of her dancing and dramatic imagination she manages to hold two conflicting forces in play, Giselle as a drama of the gothic supernatural and Giselle as a human love story. The ending is as tragic as any Giselle I’ve seen.” (The Guardian)
