Hot off its instant sell-out premiere at the Royal Opera House, GISELLE: REMIX and its anarchic, punk-reimagining of the classic ballet returns to subvert this timeless story of love, loss, revenge, redemption and forgiveness.

In this queer, lip-sync cabaret retelling, Giselle is a hopeless romantic, raised on a diet of Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore 1990's rom-coms, who comes to realise that the real world of queer sex, hook-ups and heartbreak is a far cry from Hollywood’s happily-ever-after.

What follows is a journey through shame, assimilation, anger, acceptance and - finally – liberation and joy. All performed to a soundtrack of queer icons ranging from Judy to SOPHIE.

A mixture of live performance art meets warehouse cabaret meets pop concert extravaganza.

From the minds of Pleasance Associate Artist and former Roundhouse Resident Artist, Jack Sears (Parris is Dreaming, The Bower, Saintmaking), and Royal Ballet Soloist, Hannah Grennell (Woolf Works, The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty), comes an evening of cabaret excellence, theatrical divinity, staggering choreography and jaw-dropping lip-syncs, created in collaboration with dancers from The Royal Ballet.

A plethora of the most exciting dancers around (full cast to be announced) and a soon-to-be-revealed show-stopping legend from the cabaret world will join Jack Sears for a Giselle like you’ve never seen it before.

GISELLE: REMIX is also delighted to be hosting a GISELLE: LATE, a queer takeover of the Pleasance Theatre on Saturday 20th April featuring an array of the most exciting emerging drag performers, cabaret stars, go-go dancers, opera singers and more who will be stationed throughout the building after that evening’s main show. And if that’s not enough, an array of iconic DJs will turn the Pleasance Main House into Club Giselle for a night of dancing, debauchery and disco until late!

Further details to be announced.

All tickets for the 7pm performance on Saturday 20th April include entry to GISELLE: LATE, with tickets to just the LATE night curation available here.
