Don Quixote is one of Osipova"s greatest roles, the one that made her famous. To my regret I still have not seen her dance it. Some fans preferred her in the role when she was new to it, but from all accounts she always dances it with ultra showy brilliance and if you enjoy that kind of dancing (I usually do) you will have a great time. I cannot say whether she will show for Giselle, but personally I am doubtful. She is (in my judgment) a great Giselle certainly.
Thank you! Yes, I agree, and that is part of why I want to see Osipova in Don Q (I prefer other dancers to Svetlana Zakharova, but chose to see her in Swan Lake- even that overstuffed version- because I think it's a bit of a signature role for her). I'd like to see celebrated dancers is classic roles to lay the groundwork before I start seeing more comtemporary pieces with newer dancers. An exception- my dream was to see Vishneva in Manon, but I was in DC and traveling during the Met season, regretfully. Next year!
