What an amazing performance of Akram Khan’s Giselle.... absolutely moving and full of expression. The fantastic music and lighting added to the intense emotions. Well done English National Ballet for an absolutely stunning evening! This contemporary theatre was great with good facilities. Can’t wait for the next show!
It's just the best! Exceptional, world class dance all year round. Also offers dancers support and training. The theatre is quite small and can get a bit toasty towards the end of the night, and you might want to pre order interval refreshments, but that's the same as most theatres. The staff are helpful and it's all manageable in a wheelchair. I would recommend this place to anyone.
