    Unfortunately Gayane is not staged too often,The Sabre dance is well known.

    I saw the new version of Giselle, reimagined by Akram Khan and composer Lorenzo Lamagna, twice in a matter of a few days last week. That’s my new favourite. It was so intense, and very moving...

    My favourite ballet in choreography and music is Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet" - the Cranko version: very different from the MacMillan choreography.



    See for yourself:

    I love Giselle too.I do not know this version by Akram Khan and composer Lorenzo Lamagna.I have danced the role of Myrtha in the classical version by composer A.Ch.Adam.The performance you write about would be interesting to see.

    It was incredible! It contains the same tale, and a modern take on the dance, featuring the English National Ballet. The music is more propulsive, using elements of the original score to create a very intense experience. You might get a sense of it in this video:
