Dutch National Opera & Ballet , Main Stage + Tour
From € 27
In 2009, Rachel Beaujean and Ricardo Bustamante created their own new version of what is probably the most romantic production in the classical ballet repertoire. Their successful interpretation of Giselle conquered not only the hearts of Dutch audiences, but also those of spectators in countries like Spain, China and Colombia. Beaujean says, “If it’s presented well, Giselle goes much further than skin-deep.”
