In July, the Paris Opéra Ballet came to NY, where it presented three programs, including Giselle. You can link to my DanceTabs review here.
And here is a short excerpt:
“The costumes, realized by Claudie Gastine, are also beautiful, especially those for the wilis. Sumptuous, full, long skirts with layer upon layer of tulle so light it could fly off by itself; soft, ruched bodices with puffy sleeves and deep décolletés exposing miles of soft white flesh, tiny diaphanous wings and crowns of flowers for the hair. The arrival of the wilis takes one’s breath away.”
