Los Angeles Premiere! Ballet On Screen!
Co-presented with The Los Angeles Music Center and Dance Camera West

All ticket buyers will be eligible to win passes to The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s production of Giselle, which makes its North American debut at The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with four performances from January 31 to February 2.

2013, 104 min, New Zealand, Dir: Toa Fraser

Prima ballerina Gillian Murphy plays the title role of a peasant girl in Germany during the Middle Ages who lives for dance despite frail health. Giselle’s heart is broken by a prince (Qi Huan), but her undiminished love saves the man from supernatural forces. The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s critically acclaimed production was shot with five cameras, and Toa Fraser’s graceful and powerful film adds immediacy to one of the oldest surviving ballets by interweaving it with an offstage romance between two dancers (Murphy and Huan).
