Rich in atmosphere and tension, this is an original take on a contemporary ghost story, set in the intense and glamorous world of dance. Marianne is a talented ballet dancer, destined for great things. But her friend Harriet is worried about her: being skinny is common enough in ballet school, but Marianne seems to be making herself ill. Learning about Giuseppina, who danced the first Swanilda in Paris in the nineteenth century, Harriet is excited to be accompanying Marianne to dance at the Opera. But as Marianne grows weaker, Harriet sees another dancer waiting in the wings. Can it really be Giuseppina, reaching out from the past...?
