This film records irreplaceable performances by Ulanova.
22 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arne Andersen (or someone at IMDb Pro Home) has confused Czinner's film with another film. Czinner's film records performances by Galina Ulanova and the Bolshoi Ballet in England in 1956. Ulanova's Giselle is the greatest ever recorded, and this film is precious. Czinner filmed with multiple cameras one act of "Giselle" each night at Covent Garden after the regular performance. Ulanova was considered the greatest Giselle of her time, and this film shows why. She was at the end of her performing career, but her dancing is brilliant (though mostly not virtuosic) and heartbreaking. For the American release, part of "Giselle" was cut; this should be restored before the original footage is lost. But this film is of inestimable value.
