    Default Recent performance of Giselle

    My wife recently went to see a performance of Giselle from the Royal Opera House with Carlos Acosta and Natalia Osipova in the lead roles. This was streamed to our local Odeon cinema, which seems to be very popular
    She enjoyed the performance overall especially the second half and thought the dancing of Natalia Osipova was excellent
    Anyone else out there seen this?

    She says he is a short man and his main job was to lift Osipova!
    Appears he did this very well

    just watched this one Giselle production - it's appalling, so mediocre, and the dancers with limbs lke sticks.. worse of all that Osipova has been forced by the resident crew to step down to the overall mediocrity of Covent Garden amateurish company.

    I think Natalia Osipova also plays for ABT right?

    Default Recent performance of Giselle

    extraordinary Giselle this afternoon. Victor Lebedev is an extraordinary dancer/actor and his Giselle, Anastasia Soboleva, was wonderful too. So moving.

    I missed last year's Giselle at the Ballet West in SLC... I would have enjoyed it quite a bit I think.
