On the Bolshoi's ballet page they list two Giselles in repertoire. I know the Kirov does this with their two reconstructed ballets--Sleeping Beauty and Bayaderka--the old and the old/new editions-- But that doesn't seem to be the case with Giselle at the Bolshoi (if anything I think the Kirov's production with old scenery is closer to the old Petipa productions). One's Grigorovich--is there a reason both are still performed and is there a preference both among members on here, and withthe company in terms of which version they stage more often?
