ENB in Akram Khan’s Giselle

National tour opens Manchester, 27th September

After working with Tamara Rojo’s rejuvenated English National Ballet on the award-winning Dust, visionary choreographer Akram Khan is teaming up with the company again to give us his take on classic ballet Giselle. Rival company the Royal Ballet has recently received ecstatic reviews for its production of the story of a peasant girl who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another, largely thanks to the performance of star ballerina Natalia Osipova. Tamara Rojo, herself playing Giselle in this new production for ENB, won’t want to be outdone. Also on board is Oscar-winning designer Tim Yip, best known for his work on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. But it’s very much Khan’s show and he’s best known for his fusion of Western contemporary dance with the Indian classical dance form Kathak, perhaps most memorably in the London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony. Whether he’ll bring this same fusion to his reimagining of Giselle is still unclear. But won’t it be a thrill if he does?

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
