WIEN/ „Giselle“ revisited: Vienna State Ballet, February 18th, 2022
To watch „Giselle“ is (mostly) a pleasure. My connection with this ballet has not started „just yesterday“ but many decades ago, when I first saw it as a child and fell in love with its plot and atmosphere; „hook, line and sinker“.
Of course, some principals fit more the main characters than others, some nights are better than others and so are some Companies. Many versions are better than Tschernischova’s and this also applies to the costumes in the second act.
Here, some thoughts about last Friday’s performance. A very good one in spite of some flaws.
We’ll go shortly into that.
