RNZB Artist Catherine Eddy as Giselle
*********
Moonlit and magical, the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s TOWER Season of Giselle is the quintessential Romantic ballet. It is a story of love and betrayal, and ultimately forgiveness, as poignant today as it was at the first performance in 1841.
In a superbly atmospheric production, Artistic Director Gary Harris fulfils a love affair he has had with the ballet since he was a teenager. For the first time in his 35 year career he restages this masterpiece, sparing nothing to capture the emotional depth and drama of this enduring classic.
