Giselle will perform for 2 nights at The London Coliseum from 15th Jun 2010 to 16th Jun 2010.
The Mikhailovsky Theatre’s 2008 production of Giselle by Nikita Dolgushin, a specialist in historical works, amazed public and critics.
Dolgushin, a noble Albrecht in his time as a dancer, inspired this production, delicately uniting dance and classic mime. The choreographer reveals the essence of this romantic era ballet: the story of Giselle is told in the language of ballet classicism. Together with Vyacheslav Okunev, who designed the epitome of romantic settings, Dolgushin created a production that was described by the Sunday Times as ‘an exemplary Giselle’.
