The Bolshoi Ballet troupe in Yuri Grigorovich’s version of the romantic masterpiece Giselle, at last available in High-Definition. First performed in 1841, Giselle was an immediate hit. With music by Adolphe Adam and a libretto by Théophile Gautier and Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges, the ballet touches on the great romantic themes: local color, a pastoral love affair doomed to end in tragedy, a plunge into fantasy and redemption through the power of love. Composer Adolphe Adam owes his reputation to this archetypal, richly melodic romantic ballet. As Giselle, Svetlana Lunkina is simply sensational. Her Albrecht is the iconically noble dancer Dmitry Gudanov. And the cast is perfectly rounded off by Maria Allash as the Queen of the Wilis.
