Last Thursday night I was treated to The Russian National Ballet Theatre’s Giselle. Performed on the large stage of the Lycian Centre in Sugar Loaf, the story of the ballet is set in a Rhineland Village and tells of a peasant girl, Giselle, who falls in love with a Count and of a hunter who is crazy for her. The magic of the perfect unison and flawless technique of the Corps de Ballet was a considerable match for the excellent Giselle, performed by Ekaterina Egorova, who literally flew through the air and across the stage with the grace of a Giselle. The young ballerinas in the audience were transfixed as were we all. The costumes were to die for.
