The Passion of Giselle

Giselle, with its tale of human passions and supernatural forces, is one of the most enchanting ballets of all time, examining the transcendent power of self-sacrificing love.

The UK’s Royal Ballet recently premiered a brand-new production by Sir Peter Wright that perfectly captures the atmosphere of this great romantic ballet, especially in the incomparable White Act, with ghostly maidens drifting through the forest in spectacular patterns – one of the most famous of any scenes for the corps de ballet.

The Royal Ballet’s Giselle screens at Palace Byron Bay Cinema this Sunday at 1pm and Wednesday March 5 at 11am.

Tickets $21–$24 available now at the Palace box office or online at www.palacecinemas.com.au.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
