  • Adam's two-act ballet is even today considered one of the most beautiful and most characteristic works of the classical ballet.
  • This DVD presents the Bolshoi Ballet's 1990 production with the wonderful Natalia Bessmertnova, whose husband, Yuri Grigorovich, was the artistic director.

"I have never before felt so surely that I was watching greatness in a dancer; Miss Bessmertnova has a magical quality that singles her out from every other performer, a mixture of intensity of feeling and effortless projection of dance ideas. Dark-haired, huge-eyed, with long limbs and a supple torso, she is a perfect dance instrument . . . She is obviously born to dance Giselle and to assume the great classic roles and revivify them with her magnificent gifts." -- The Financial Times
