'‘Giselle’ is ballet for grown-ups,' by STEVEN CORNELIUS for The Toledo Blade. Two NYCB Principals dance the leads.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Since taking over the artistic leadership of Toledo Ballet in 1996, artistic director Nigel Burgoine has geared productions toward families and, particularly, children. With the upcoming production of the Romantic-era classic Giselle, however, Burgoine is leading his company into adult territory. Youth and beauty no longer automatically win out.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>However,<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>"Every day our students come into the studio and learn to smile and be happy on stage. But not now. The Wilis have just gotten out of the grave and are not at all happy. They are there to kill people," Burgoine said.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Well, at last we've identified Mr Burgoine as the culprit behind those perpetual, sickening smiles we see on so many dancers. <P><BR><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank>more...</A><P><BR>
