Image <P>Sylvie Guillem and Kare Lansivuori in Guillem's staging of Giselle for the National Ballet of Finland<P><BR>'Giselle' assailed by Guillem's revisionism.' Clement Crisp finds elements to admire in Sylvie Guillem's production, but dislikes that the changes she has made to the 'sacred' second act choreography. Crisp, prefers his classics in traditional mode, which is a perfectly reasonable view. For instance, he dislikes the Mats Ek versions.<P><BR><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=010116001397" TARGET=_blank><B>Clement Crisp's review</B></A> <P>'Guillem/FNB production of Giselle Guillem loses sight of fantasy.'

‘A gloriously restored Giselle.’<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Without Guillem’s name attached, the Finns would probably never have been invited to Paris’s Châtelet theatre. Yet each dancer is so dramatically convincing, and the overall chemistry so real, you might be watching your neighbours. At their centre were Guillem’s own exquisitely febrile Giselle, along with strong performances from Kare Lansivuori as a blondly handsome Albrecht and Sampo Kivela as a personable Hilarion. <P>It is equally doubtful that the Scala Opera Ballet would be coming to Covent Garden this summer if they had not been bringing the same production (with different designs). Yet this Giselle in no way rides on a star’s reputation. Come prepared to do without thatched cottages and dirndl skirts and you will discover a ballet that lives afresh to touch your heart. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <A HREF="Http://www.independent.co.uk/enjoyment/Theatre/Dance/Reviews/2001-01/dance180101.shtml" TARGET=_blank>Http://www.independent.co.uk/enjoyment/<BR>Theatre/Dance/Reviews/2001-01/dance180101.shtml</A> <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited January 18, 2001).]

By Patricia Boccadoro for 'Culture Kiosque'<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>When all the poetry and emotion is eliminated, what is the point of Giselle and Albrecht being there at all?
