This special dress rehearsal of Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company’s (La Scala Ballet) Giselle is an exclusive opportunity to gain insight into the rehearsal process of one of the world’s greatest ballet companies.

A tale of unrequited love, betrayal and redemption, Giselle is the story of an innocent peasant girl who dies of a broken heart upon learning her beloved Albrecht is engaged to someone else. Resurrected in the afterlife by the vengeful Wili maidens, Giselle must perform the ultimate act of forgiveness to prevent Albrecht falling prey to their irresistible dance.


Students of dance, theatre, music, fashion, design and arts from all over Australia can attend this dress rehearsal of Giselle at a special discounted price of $25. Tickets for The Student Movement include a pre-performance talk starting at 5:45pm and a copy of the Official Program (valued at $30). Students will be required to show proof of student status (e.g. student ID or proof of membership to performing, fashion or art school) on entry. Accompanying adults $50.

Please note: This is a working dress rehearsal, which may stop and start as needed.
