    Stunning Zakharova, Sub-par La Scala

    Giselle, with music by Adolphe Adam, is perhaps my favorite ballet, exquisite in terms of emotional depth and aesthetic beauty. Svetlana Zakharova is the star of this La Scala production, practically saving the entire production. The majority of the corps de ballet of La Scala are bland and unexciting, and at times fall out of their lines. The modified choreography doesn't do La Scala much justice, either.

    What makes this definitely worth viewing and owning is Svetlana Zakharova's stunning performance as Giselle. Her perfect technique and beautiful lines aside, she portrays a near-ideal Giselle. This DVD is worth owning solely due to her. Opposite her is Roberto Bolle, who does a mediocre job at the emotionally intricate role of Albrecht. Though his body and frame are aesthetically ideal, he dances the role as a stereotypical romantic, without incorporating the genius of the story. Another dancer worth mentioning is Vittorio D'Amato, who I think was more or less the only native Italian worth mentioning (in terms of artistry), in the role of Hilarion.

    The quality of the video is very good, with dozens of appropriately-placed shots throughout the ballet. For a more perfected version of Giselle, I would look to the Kirov's Giselle with Mezentseva. However, for fans of Zakharova and Giselle, this is worth owning.
