One of the greatest romantic ballets of all time, Giselle is Akram Khan’s first full length ballet and will see Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip, known for his work on the hit film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, create the set and costumes, while composer Ben Frost will create an adaptation of the original score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. Giselle will also see dramaturgy from Ruth Little and lighting design from Mark Henderson. English National Ballet and Akram Khan previously collaborated together on the award-winning piece Dust, part of its Lest We Forget programme.
