Royal Ballet: Giselle

Critics' choice
Tristram Kenton
'Giselle'

'Giselle' is the cornerstone of the Romantic ballet rep, and the Royal Ballet's production is a gorgeous one. The story of a peasant girl betrayed and driven to madness is a plum role for its leading ballerina. There'll be six different casts during the run and our top tips are Marianela Nuñez – always a heartbreaker – and new Russian import Natalia Osipova, an intense performer who, when the story turns supernatural, is guaranteed to spook.

Watching Giselle in such place like Royal Opera House made me levitate. Tiago Soares and Marianela Nuñes are the most romantic couple in the world, giving the audience part of their love and perfection!It´s totally unmissable!!!!!
