The perfect way to discover classical ballet

Where: The Bacon Theatre, Dean Close School, Hatherley Road, Cheltenham

When: Saturday, March 30, 5pm

What better early Mother's Day treat than a trip to the ballet in Cheltenham?

The Vienna Festival Ballet are performing Giselle at the Bacon Theatre at Dean Close School on Saturday, March 30, at 5pm.

The ultimate romantic ballet, Giselle is a tale of innocence, love, betrayal and madness.

With music by one of the 19th century's best composers, Adolphe Adam, and choreography by the late Nicholas Beriosoff, Vienna Festival Ballet's traditional staging of this 1841 masterpiece moves from the sunny optimism of Giselle's idyllic village life to an ethereal world of mystery and menace.

Giselle, a peasant girl, has fallen in love with Count Albrecht, who has told her he is a villager named Loys. Her discovery of his true identity has devastating consequences.

With its irresistible combination of a heart-breaking story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet.
