No. It is the XIX century heritage what I'm mostly counting here.

1786, and I thought about including it, but..I wanted to stick to the XIX Century. Still...a very attractive option, IMO.
Has anybody seen it...?

Saw it years ago, but it isn't er.... 'politically correct' - think contentious make-up in Bayadere.

Yes - just like some of the characters in Far From Denmark! This sort of thing is not so offensive if the viewer realizes that it was in no way intended as an offense 100+ years ago.

This doesn't surprise me at all -- I don't know about a census, but I have the sense that Swan Lake is in many more repertories than Giselle at this point.

Not only that, every small Russian touring company brings "Swan Lake," if it's not "Nutcracker" season, and the Mariinsky tours with it often. (I can't remember if the Bolshoi does as well.)

True -- I've seen a number of road show Swans, but not too many touring Giselle's.

I'm trying to cast my vote and because I can't vote for any ballets in category 1, I get an oops!something went wrong - but in category 1 there is no way to vote if you've not seen any of the ballets live. Please advise. Thank you.

I know...that's why I put that "none of them" option in the last group, because the system forces you to cast a vote in each of the groups. Thing is, I would had been forced to eliminate one ballet from the first group, and now it is too late, because it would delete all the votes from that particular ballet. Perhaps I wrongly assumed that "Giselle" was the secure choice for everybody.

ok, I voted but had to fudge the first category by selecting a ballet (see post above), although I haven't actually seen any ballets in cat 1 live. I chose Giselle because I WILL see it live this summer, thankfully, at SPAC when Natl Ballet of Canada visits. Also, have seen Giselle on YouTube and DVD. All the others I voted I have seen them live. FYI, my Coppellia is Balanchine's. And, I'm happy to report, I'll see SB again next week at Koch Theatre!

Oh, how I agree. Privately, I still call it the better name! IMO, a truly cultured philanthropist would have insisted on no name change.
