The Bolshoi Ballet's production of Giselle, with choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after the traditional version, and set and costume designs by Simon Virsaladze, is an almost ideal production of the quintessential ballet. It goes without saying that choreographically and visually speaking, the ballet is absolutely perfect - it is all in the hands of the dancers. Dimitri Gudanov is admirable in this role, but it is Svetlana Lunkina who really shines. Her gestures, emotionality, and attenuated lines produce an ethereal and remarkable effect. I would watch this over and over again just for her, without counting her remarkable partner and the solid corps de ballet. As per usual of 'The Bolshoi Ballet: HD Collection', the video and audio is in very high definition, wonderfully filmed. I believe that this DVD is one of the must-have Giselles in any balletomane's collection.
