Suggestions for "Giselle" on video or DVD

3 posts in this topic

I've been reading reviews of "Giselle" videos at Amazon.com and now I'm totally confused. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

You want to buy one, I assume--

Fracci and Bruhn for wonderful dancing but irritating camera work.

I also like the Baryshnikov/Makarova/Van Hamel...but I think the LaScala production with Ferri is beautiful (but then, I love Ferri) and the score isn't as chopped up as the ABT ones....

I have Alonso, Makarova, Ferri, Lynn Seymour, Bessmertnova, Fracci, the one with young Malakhov where his hair was still brown (I'm sorry but I don't recall the ballerina), and two more which I can't remember.....that's for complete ones--if you just want a particular excerpt, there are many othersavailable.

I didn't check Amazon's listings.....but don't forget the BA link here!

Thanks for your suggestions! We already have the Alonso one, and while it's interesting, we were looking for a version on stage. I thought the La Scala one sounded good, and my daughter loves Ferri, so I guess that's #1 so far. Though Malakhov with brown hair sounds intriquing. ;)
