Sir Peter Wright


Adolphe Adam, arranged by Joseph Horovitz

A haunting world of love, deceit and forgiveness awaits with Giselle, one of classical ballet’s most breathtaking works. This quintessential Romantic ballet achieves heights of emotion and psychological drama befitting its status as “the ballerina’s Hamlet” and gives full expression to the redemptive power of love. The National Ballet of Canada performs Sir Peter Wright’s celebrated staging, which distills every note of Adolphe Adam’s score into exquisite movement and emotion.

Giselle was produced as a memorial to the late William P. Walker and was made possible through the courtesy of many generous friends of the National Ballet.

The company’s Canadian tours are made possible with the generous support of The John and Margaret Bahen Fund of The National Ballet of Canada, Endowment Foundation.
