From The Royal Opera HouseStreaming Video - 2010
A tale of deception, misplaced love, and supernatural vengeance, Giselle reaches into the heart of European folklore and the ancient connections between dance and spirituality. This exquisite production by the Royal Ballet features the original choreography of Marius Petipa - perhaps the most influential ballet master and choreographer in the history of Western performance, whose Giselle contributions enhanced those of Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, great artistic figures in their own right. Rising-star principals Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg appear, respectively, in the title role and as Count Albrecht - echoing their off-stage partnership with elegant and moving performances.
