The Royal Ballet
The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
Giselle was first presented by the Ballet du Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique on June 28, 1841. The title role is one of the most sought-after in ballet, as it demands both technical perfection and great dramatic skill.
Featuring the fabulous Alina Cojocaru in the title role and Johan Kobborg as a torn Count Albrecht, Peter Wright’s sparkling production and John Macfarlane’s pastoral designs create an opulent feast for the eyes, here captured in High Definition video and true surround sound.
- Giselle: Alina Cojocaru
- Count Albrecht: Johan Kobborg
- Myrtha (Queen of the Wilis): Marianela Nuñez
- Hilarion (a forester): Martin Harvey
Choreographer: Marius Petipa
Bonus features: Cast gallery & synopsis.
Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London in January 2006.
‘Cojocaru's interpretation, everyone seems to agree, is one of the greatest of all time, and she continues to refine it with every performance… One of the things which makes Cojocaru so poignant in this role is a quality that one senses in the dancerherself. Something in the emotional charge of her performances, some fragility beneath the ballerina steel, emphasises the ephemeral nature of the art form. It reminds us that we must seize the day.’ - The Observer
