“The changes certainly aren’t subtle, with libretto, choreography and music being significantly altered. In a production that honours tradition without ever being restrained by it, Ballet Ireland’s “Giselle” embraces the contemporary and is all the better for doing so. Brave and breathtakingly beautiful at times, Ballet Ireland’s “Giselle” borders on the sublime.” The Arts Review
Direction & choreography Hannes Langolf
“Powerful in its expressiveness, intelligent and wonderfully poetic in its visual power” Trierischer Volksfreund
