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.
