The English National Ballet performs in Northern Ireland for the first time with the classic production of Giselle.

This is a haunting tale of a young peasant girl who falls in love with a handsome Duke, Albrecht, who hides his nobility and his engagement to another.

When this deception is revealed, Giselle is driven to madness and dies of a broken heart - only to be greeted by the vengeful spirits of abandoned brides who are ready to welcome Giselle into their fold, and force men to dance to their death.
