Wednesday 27 March 2013 by Sarah Kearney

As part of their season at the London Coliseum The Mikhailovsky Theatre Ballet Company are presenting Giselle from 26 to 29 March 2013.

The title role will be danced by Olesya Novikova, Natalia Osipova and Polina Semionova.

Judith Mackrell compares Novikova’s and Osipova’s interpretations of Giselle with video clips of both ballerinas performing the Giselle Act 1 Variation,
“One of the tantalising attractions of the Mikhailovsky programme is the chance to see Olesya Novikova and Natalia Osipova dancing their two very different interpretations of the role.”
