A review of Cincinnati Ballet's 'Giselle' by David Lyman in The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Midway through her pas de deux with Albrecht, who has come seeking forgiveness, it felt like Touchet somehow tapped into a reserve of profound emotions she's rarely displayed before. It was made all the more memorable by the dancing of the women's corps de ballet. Despite a number of new faces in the group, this corps moves like an ensemble that has spent years together. Crisp and precise, they move with the confidence and familiarity of a single breathing organism.
Unfortunately, Touchet's partner Gurevich - a guest artist from the Boston Ballet - wasn't able to conjure up the same sort of depth. He's an able dancer and a pleasant performer, but dramatically he simply wasn't in Touchet's league.
