Paris Opera Ballet brings "Giselle" to Singapore
In a rare international appearance, the world renowned Paris Opera Ballet makes its way to Singapore with their beloved classic "Giselle".
"Giselle" is the legendary story of a young peasant seduced by a great lord. A love story, powerful, symbolic and full of magic. The romantic fantasy of an era where dreams and reality are weaved together in a very tragic way.
With origins tracing back to 1661 during the reign of King Louis XIV of France, the Paris Opera Ballet is considered to be the birthplace of classical ballet. Nearly two centuries on, their tradition of perfection and purity makes them one of the world’s finest ensembles of our time.
This performance features live orchestral accompaniment by the Singapore Lyric Opera Orchestra.
Dates: 19 - 21 January 2011
Venue : Esplanade Theatre
