Once we are able to operate again we will be in touch with you with details of the rescheduled dates. You can then transfer your current tickets to the new date, however if you are unable to transfer to the new date or don’t wish to have your ticket transferred to another production you will be given a full refund. You will not lose any money.
This is an unprecedented event for our venue, and we thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

English National Ballet’s production of Akram Khan’s Giselle
After the success of our first season of filmed live events last autumn, we are delighted to announce our 4th screening in our second season of six screenings.
All evenings will be again introduced by Barry Purves with informed trivia, anecdotes and some background of the production. The bar will be open as usual before and after the show and during the interval. So please come and join us in a friendly, informal atmosphere and take advantage of sensational screening facilities as well as our low prices and free car park
English National Ballet have in their repertoire a gloriously rich and romantic production of Giselle, a traditional version if you will, but almost two years the company, in a co-production with our own Manchester international Festival and Sadler’s wells, decided to run a startlingly modern and hard hitting, production, choreographed by Akram Khan, with set and costumes by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon designer Tim Yip and with Giselle danced by Tamara Rojo, the director of ENB. This production was filmed lasted year, the first production of ENB to be filmed for the cinema, in the Liverpool Empire Theatre.
This dramatic multi award winning production is dance at it’s most powerful and relevant. We are thrilled to be screening this ballet that widens the scope of dance.
Running time 113 minutes.
