Which variation do you over analyze?
Posted 29 July 2009 - 01:37 PM
Every step ( or second for that matter) I go..."so and so does this step/move/extension better than so and so".
Come to think of it...which variation in the enire ballet repitoire would you feel will tell us what a dancer is capable of..male or female?
And you can bet that I'll be You-Tubing alot here....
But I have to give a shout to the You Tube contrubutor BalletForYou...this person has made available complete ballets of several company's...3 Swan lakes..4 Sleeping beauty's....etc.

Also what about our own techniques of seeing and noticing--which may not always be the same night to night--another variable.

What other variations were dancers performing in Giselle when she left Russia? Perhaps this is the only one she knew? On youtube a contributer has said it was staged by Petipa for Cornalba in 1888. I have not checked this statement.
The film is shot at an angle that distorts. There are problems with the speed of the film.
Through my eyes, I definitely get a glimpse of her genius.
Pavlova who is equally badly served by film, was to have said, "It doesn't even catch the flow of movement of my dress so how can it show my dancing?

You are quite correct. My sincere apologies to Christian. I misread your post.

You're quite right, Hans. I DO have an issue with that substitution.
