  • Ballet BC presents a contemporary version of Giselle by its Resident Choreographer and Artistic Director of Compagnie Flak, José Navas. The highly anticipated World Premiere revives the well-known, romantic story of Giselle for a 21st century dance audience.

This innovative reworking of the full-length classic is a collaboration between Montreal set designer Lino, lighting designer Marc Parent, Vancouver costume designer Linda Chow.
