GiselleBlu-ray Disc - 2012
The Bolshoi Ballet troupe in Yuri Grigorovich's version of the romantic masterpiece Giselle. First performed in 1841, Giselle was an immediate hit. With music by Adolphe Adam and a libretto by Theophile Gautier and Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges, the ballet touches on the great romantic themes. As Giselle, Svetlana Lunkina is simply sensational. Her Albrecht is the iconically noble dancer, Dmitry Gudanov. The cast is perfectly rounded off by Maria Allash as the Queen of the Wilis.
