Prima pupil to perform in Ballet West production of Giselle

Good luck to Prima pupil Anna Farren who is performing tonight at the Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling, with Ballet West. The Edinburgh Associates are performing together in a ‘curtain raiser’ for the company’s performance of Giselle.

Inspiration for the ballet, which was premiered in Paris 1841, came from two ghost stories - Victor Hugo's poem Phantoms and Heinrich Heine's On Germany. It has become the epitome of ballet romanticism and tells the story of a peasant girl named Giselle, who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. The Wilis - a group of supernatural women who dance men to death - summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover for death, but Giselle's great love frees him from their grasp.

Well done Anna we are so proud of you!
