This production of Mats Ek’s ballet Giselle is part of Arthaus Musik’s Elegance Series, which is a collection of ballet performances from the world’s best dance houses featuring the greatest choreographers and celebrating the legacy of legendary choreographer Matias Petipa. The music for this work was composed by Adolphe Adam. The premiere took place in July 6, 1982, and was later adapted for TV in 1987. “My version of Giselle is an attempt at retelling the story. For me Giselle- and this applies to the old ballet as well- is about love. Love, which in the old version conquers death. That differs in mine. But love remains the main thing.” (Mats Ek)
