BALLET fans are in for a treat in Kilmarnock this weekend.
The town’s Palace Theatre is the venue for a performance of Giselle, considered to the Hamlet of ballet.
The world-renowned Moscow Ballet production is haunting, atmospheric, and, quite simply, wonderful.
Tickets for the show, which begins at 7.30pm, are £20/£18 concessions.
The romantic ballet Giselle is a classic, as popular today as when it was first performed over 160 years ago.
With its haunting musical score Giselle is evocative, moving and powerful as it shifts scenes between the fantastic ethereal and rustic existential worlds. Little wonder it was proclaimed the triumphant successor to La Sylphide and the greatest ballet of its time.
Tickets are selling well, but call the box office on 01563 554900 to book or visit www.visiteastayrshire.com to book online if you don’t have yours yet.
