One of the greatest ballets of all time, Giselle comes to Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds between Thursday, March 2 and Saturday 4 .

Performed by the critically acclaimed Ballet Theatre UK, this tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love promises to delight audiences.

First performed in 1841, Giselle has never lost its popularity with audiences and is considered by many to be one of the jewels in the crown of the romantic repertoire.

It tells the story of a young girl who falls deeply in love only to be deceived, for unknown to her love her was betrothed to another.

Through despair and desperation the young girl kills herself as she could not live without him.

The Queen of the Wilis, along with the ghosts of young girls who die before their wedding nights, condemns the lover to dance to his death.

He can only be saved by the intervention of the spirit of Giselle and the break of dawn which force the Wilis to flee.

The show features a full Corps de Ballet of 24 international dancers and principal ballerinas.

Pop along to the Theatre Royal to watch this haunting classic in its full glory - set to the stunning music by Adolphe Adam.
