This high quaity DVD is well worth getting for the outstanding performance by Natalia Osipova.
on 4 September 2014
Natalia Osipova is possibly the finest exponent of Giselle today. Her performance at Covent Garden in Peter Wright's production for the Royal Ballet, which was staged with care and aplomb by Christopher Carr, was an astonishing interpretation both in terms of technique and artistry. A memorable moment is as she floats through the air in Act 11 like ethereal gossamer. Fortunately this outstanding performance has been recorded on DVD in High Definition and true Surround Sound on the Opus Arte label reference OA 1144D.
The DVD is worth getting, if for no other reason, for her performance partnered by an unselfish Carlos Acosta as Albrecht.
