De príncipes disfrazados y campesinas alegres

Me gustan las Giselles que no se pasean durante el primer acto como ñoñas enfermizas. Me gustan los Alberchts que hacen 32 entrechat-six sin depeinarse. Que para algo son príncipes, qué caramba.
Me gustan los campesinos que bailan como campesinos y las willis con ojos de cristal.
Me gustan las Myrthas que cruzan los pas de bourrés y los Hilariones que construyen cruces atando dos palos encontrados por el bosque.
Me sigue gustando, en definitiva, esta Giselle que se grabó en 1969.

Hoy el ballet Giselle cumple 175 años. A ver si no nos lo cargamos.

I like Giselles that don’t go around like a sickly silly girl in the first act.
I like Alberchts who can finish his 32 entrechat-six easily. Well, he is supossed to play the prince…
I like peasants who dance like peasants and willis with glassy-look into their eyes.
I like Myrthas who cross their feet in the pas de bourrés and Hilarions who build a wooden cross by putting together two sticks found in the forest.
In truth I still like this Giselle, recorded in 1969.

The ballet Giselle was premiered 175 years ago. Let’s wish we do not spoil it.
