Adolphe Adam: Giselle

Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Out of stock

From La Scala comes a staging of an archetypical Romantic ballet on DVD. A production of Giselle features the original version of the choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot and was danced by outstanding dancers, including two of international ballet's star dancers - Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle. First performed at the Academie Royale de Musique in Paris in 1841 as a two-act"ballet-pantomime", Giselle is hailed by ballet historians as the apotheosis of the Romantic ballet. The ballet was conceived by the influential French poet, author, critic and possibly the greatest champion of the Romantic ballet, Theophile Gautier, who, together with Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges wrote the scenario that inspired Adolphe Adam's score. In this performance, Giselle is danced by Svetlana Zakharova, a Ukrainian dancer, who grew up in the tradition of St Petersburg's Maryinsky Ballet and is now one of the youngest ballerinas at Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet, where her predecessors include Galina Ulanova, one of the most famous Giselles in the history of ballet. Her partner as Albrecht is Roberto Bolle, La Scala's current star dancer. The filming for this DVD recreates the atmosphere of a night at the wonderful La Scala opera house, while providing the viewer with a closer look at the dancers, their interpretation and their artistic endeavours.
