RECORDED SCREENING (105 mins)
English National Ballet’s recording of their production of Giselle as reconceived by choreographer Akram Khan. It was filmed at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017, directed for the screen by Ross McGibbon.
Giselle is danced by Tamara Rojo, who commissioned this exciting re-imagining of the romantic classical ballet for the company of which she is Artistic Director. Company Soloist James Streeter is Albrecht, Guest Artist Jeffrey Cirio from American Ballet Theatre is Hilarion and Stina Quagebeur is the Queen of the Wilis.
This is a very different ballet from the romantic creation that Jean Corrali and Jules Perrot choreographed to tell Théophile Gautier’s story. Its plot has the same overall outline but with very different resonances. Akram Khan has created a stunning new work of powerful theatrical impact and thrilling dance to a powerful new score by Vincenzo Lamagna, though those familiar with the nineteenth-century version will recognize the use of some themes from Adolphe Adam’s original.
