Creole Giselle DVD

Style No: KUD1291


Sorry, this item is currently unavailable.

Now, for the first time on home video, the Dance Theatre of Harlem is presented in Creole Giselle, their acclaimed interpretation of the ballet classic. Making only minor changes in the story, music and traditional choreography of the repertory staple, DTH founder Arthur Mitchell has set the ballet in 1841 Louisiana. It was a time when social status among freed blacks was measured by how far removed one's family was from slavery: the community's "aristocrats" looked down on those whose immediate family had been enslaved. Thus, in the DTH version, Giselle faces the same social obstacles and heart-breaking rejection by Albert and his family as their classical counterparts. Giselle is danced by Virginia Johnson, hailed as "strong and yet delicate…very moving…remarkable." Eddie J. Shellman co-stars, and was praised as "an attractive and unusually brash Albert, his solos securely dispatched." See for your self why Creole Giselle is one of the Dance Theatre of Harlem's most popular works. 88 mins. (1988/2005) DVD-All-Region.
