Balletto del Teatro alla Scala in Giselle, choreography by Coralli/Perrot. With Svetlana Zacharova and Roberto Bolle. First performed in 1841, Giselle is the archetypal classical ballet. Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot’s original choreography has been retained for this production, with "choreographic restaging" by Yvette Chauviré, a famous Giselle of the past. It is a conservative Giselle which will appeal to traditionalist audiences and which has also found its way onto a successful commercial DVD with these very protagonists. The lovely Russian Svetlana Zakharova is a touching Giselle, very emotional within the stylistic boundaries established by the production. Throughout Act Two she seems perfectly weightless making the impossible look easy. Technically and interpretively, this is an ideal performance. The gorgeous Roberto Bolle is no less impressive. He dances the role of Albrecht with passion, and his regret in Act Two is palpable – one senses that he is willing to let the Wilis dance him to death in revenge for his thoughtless treatment of Giselle.
