Charles Jude is always conscious of the dominating influence Rudolf Nureyev has had on his work to revisit the classical ballets. The story of Giselle is timeless, with such a simple structure that Charles Jude (like Nureyev with Romeo and Juliet) did not wish to transpose it. He therefore has kept the original historical context, but with a strictly contemporary choreography. Each character dances in a different choreographic style, fitting the specific personality of the role. Giselle intensifies the play of the actors, the mastery of the dancers; it is a luxuriant ballet, with a breathtaking technical complexity.
