Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Of his many works for the stage, Adolphe Adam's ballet Giselle ou Les Wilis is the best known. The story is based on a legend in which the Wilis, or ghosts of unmarried girls, seek revenge on the living. Speedily written amidst a hotbed of Parisian infatuations and given a timeless parochial setting, this archetypal romantic ballet has everything from unrequited love to deceit, drama, tragedy, and conciliatory resolution. Andrew Mogrelia has been acclaimed for conducting of 'warmth, grace and vitality'. (The Penguin Guide on Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty 8.550490-92).

The complete version of this recording (8.550755-56) was warmly received, with the Penguin Guide describing Andrew Mogrelia's Slovak players as having 'grace, elegance and plenty of life.' This single highlights disc joins others such as his Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet (8.550380), making these staples of our catalogue approachable to an even wider audience.

Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording and work with major dance companies. He has worked with the English National, Dutch National, Finnish National, Norwegian National ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.
