113mins, including one interval

Hailed as ‘a masterpiece of 21st century dance’, Akram Khan’s Giselle comes to cinemas for the first time, a chance to see this award-winning production in glorious high definition on the big screen.

One of the greatest romantic ballets, Gisellehas been re-imagined by celebrated choreographer Akram Khan with Artistic Director and Lead Principal of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory. With staging and costumes by Academy Award-winning Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), the ballet has won an Olivier Award and the South Bank Sky Arts Award for English National Ballet, received rapturous 5-star reviews and was sold out when performed at London's Sadler's Wells. Filmed live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017, Akram Khan’s Giselle is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon.
