Queensland Ballet's Giselle - Outdoors at HOTA
For a strictly limited season, experience Queensland Ballet’s spectacular, critically acclaimed production of the iconic ballet, Giselle, under the stars at our Outdoor Stage.
Beautiful and haunting, Giselle is a luminous masterpiece of Romantic ballet with its tale of passion, betrayal and redemption.
The supernatural story follows the young peasant girl Giselle as she falls in love and dies of a broken heart, deceived by her lover Albrecht, who is engaged to another. Deep in the moonlit forest, she emerges in the twilight spirit world of the vengeful Wilis where she must perform the ultimate act of forgiveness to save him from certain death.
With its exquisite choreography and enchanting score, this heart-rending tale has held audiences spellbound since its première in 1841.
Bring your picnic rug, book your hamper, and get in quick – this is sure to be a magical experience, not to be missed.
