Notes & Reviews:
Giselle is without question the most romantic of all the classical ballets. It is a tragic love story which has touched audiences for over one hundred years.
This new production from Russia was filmed live on the stage of the State Theatre Academy in the Kremlin. The intensely theatrical nature of this ballet places immense demands on both the technical and dramatic powers of the lead dancers. The role of Count Albrecht is danced by Vladimir Malakhov, a sensational dancer of enormous talent. Giselle is portrayed by Ludmilla Vasileva, who gives a memorable performance as the quintessential ballet heroine in this enduring tale of love lost.Notes & Reviews:
