Giselle was the greatest masterpiece among the ballets staged in Paris during the heyday of Romanticism. It has been dubbed the Hamlet of ballet due to the double challenge of its central role. A simple girl is driven from joy to madness and death through an unhappy love. She becomes a ghost ordered to help destroy the man who betrayed her, yet she seeks to sustain him because of her undying love.
This title role is danced by Galina Mezentseva, whose performances have established her place among the great ballerinas of the Kirov, Konstantin, Zaklinsky, as Albrecht, continues the unsurpassed Russian tradition of handsome and athletic male dancers; a superb partner as well as brilliant soloist. The part of Myrtha is taken by another of the Kirov's most admired performers, Tatyana Terekhova, with two rising stars, Altynai Asylmuratova and Olga Lyhovskaya as her attendants. This NVC ARTS recording from the stage of one of the world's most beautiful theatres was directed for television and DVD and by the award-winning Danish director, Preben Montell.
