Notes & Reviews:

Premiered in 1841, Adolphe Adam's Giselle stands as one of the most important French dance creations, a rare masterpiece of lyric theatre that is particularly renowned for the extraordinary beauty of its music. Along with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Sir Neville Marriner brilliantly evokes the dichotomy between everyday life and the otherworldliness of the second act to deliver a first-rate performance of this iconic work.
