Mats Ek: Giselle

Description

The acclaimed Swedish choreographer Mats Ek is renowned for his modern reworkings of the classic ballets. This studio recording of his highly-stylised Giselle, with surreal settings by Marie-Louise De Geer-Bergenstrahle, features Ana Laguna in the title role and Luc Bouy as Albrecht. Giselle falls ‘madly in love’, and the supernatural element in the second act is replaced by the harsh reality of a lunatic asylum in Ek’s intensely moving interpretation. Adolphe Adam’s music is played by the Monte-Carlo Opera Orchestra conducted by Richard Bonynge.
