Recorded in 2016, this performance stars principal dancers Marianela Nuñez as the innocent peasant girl Giselle and Vadim Muntagirov as her duplicitous lover Albrecht.
A ballet of two contrasting worlds, Act I requires the ballerina to appear naive and artless, her dancing alive with earthy enthusiasm. In Act II she transforms into light and air as she exists in a spectral, moonlit beauty.
With its combination of a memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet. A beautiful production, simply stunning on the big screen.[Palace Opera & Ballet]
