The quintessential Romantic ballet, Giselle has remained a cornerstone of the
classical repertory since its premiere in 1841. Peter Wright’s landmark
production for The Royal Ballet does full justice to the work’s emotional
and atmospheric power, with John Macfarlane’s designs beautifully capturing
the contrast between
the human and supernatural worlds. Giselle is one of the most challenging and demanding roles in the repertory and has always been a showcase for exceptional ballerinas. With Marianela Nuñez’s ‘absolute mastery’ of the choreography, she and her Albrecht, Vadim Muntagirov, are ‘technically thrilling’ (Guardian).
- The second Giselle recording starring Marianela Nuñez, released due

- Extra features: Introduction to Giselle with Peter Wright and the artists, Exploring Mime and Working Together.
‘‘Muntagirov and Nuñez are technically thrilling....’’ (The Guardian)
