Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Stirring the Tea Pot

A house without tea is not a home.

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.
