Royal New Zealand Ballet

Reinvention of the repertory has a long heritage in dance, and this ballet company’s critically acclaimed staging of Giselle is the production of the moment. The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s dynamic dancers bring you a “creative and glorious” revisiting of the ballet first performed in Paris in 1841. Giselle harnesses the power of forgiveness and redemption to vanquish the anguish of love and betrayal. The technically poised yet expressively convincing company fills the stage with a throng of 34 talented dancers to deliver one of the oldest living ballets in the international repertory in a lyric, pitch-perfect retelling.

Giselle Film Screening
Sat,  Jan 11th, 2014

Aero Theatre

Add to your experience by attending the Los Angeles premiere of a film interpretation of The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s critically acclaimed production of Giselle, co- presented with The American Cinemateque and Dance Camera West.  Shot with five cameras, director Toa Fraser’s graceful and powerful film adds immediacy to one of the oldest surviving ballets by interweaving it with an offstage romance between two dancers (Gillian Murphy and Qi Huan, who will reprise their roles live on the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage).  All attendees will be entered to win tickets to the live performance.
