Mark your calendars: The Royal Ballet’s cinema broadcast series will bring the company’s Giselle to movie theaters across the U.S. next Monday night.
This installment is especially compelling because it features one of the Royal’s hottest partnerships: Natalia Osipova and Carlos Acosta. Osipova’s Giselle is electrifying on its own, with her ever-astounding jump making her a particularly unearthly Wili. But she and the heroic Acosta share a singular chemistry. He seems particularly tender toward Osipova, particularly eager to take care of her. (The Giselle performance to be aired next week was actually filmed live this weekend, and reviews of the pair in the ballet have been glowing.)
