DADA Masilo is coming to the Alhambra Theatre with her revolutionary production of Giselle.

The Soweto-born dancer and award-winning choreographer achieved international renown for her reinterpretations of Carmen, Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake.

Dancing in the title role, Masilo promises to lead her company of 12 dancers with theatrical mastery. The music fuses electronic sampling from the orchestrations by Adolf Adams, layered with African voice and percussion.

Masilo was born and raised in the Johannesburg township of Soweto. Trained in classical ballet and contemporary dance, she fuses these techniques with African dance steps to create her high-speed style.

Giselle marks the fourth classic Masilo has reinterpreted in a decade and cements her growing reputation as a powerful and dynamic choreographic voice on the international stage.

Opening in a lively South African village, Masilo’s Giselle tells the story of a trusting peasant girl who is thrust into a world of betrayal and shame when her lover rejects her.

Spurned by her family and killed by heartbreak, Giselle returns from the grave as a supernatural being bent on revenge.

Giselle can be seen at the Bradford theatre on October 11 and 12.Visit or call 01274 432000 to book tickets for Giselle.
