About

Of his many works for the stage, Adolphe Adamís ballet Giselle ou Les Wilis is the best known. The story is based on a legend in which the Wilis, or ghosts of unmarried girls, seek revenge on the living. Speedily written amidst a hotbed of Parisian infatuations and given a timeless parochial setting, this archetypal romantic ballet has everything from unrequited love to deceit, drama, tragedy and conciliatory resolution.

The complete version of this recording (8.550755-56) was warmly received, with the Penguin Guide describing the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra players as having 'grace, elegance and plenty of life'.

Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording and work with major dance companies. He has worked with the English National, Dutch National, Finnish National, Norwegian National ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.
