"ENB Giselle"
 
   Here are a few thoughts. I saw 2 casts from Manchester.

Monica Perego/Vlad Bubnov/Shi Ning Liu- (Hilarion)

Monica Perego is a fine dancer- but her manner is just too knowing for the first act Giselle. Bubnov was a most convincing Albrecht,self less partnering and elegant movement. Shi Ning Liu although a talented dancer sadly could not bring the character of the simple peasant to life.

Begonia Cao/Shi Ning Liu-Daniel Jones

Begonia Cao made her debut and most impressive it was too. She showed her real joy at dancing and was a shy and fragile Giselle.Shi Ning Liu was better as Albrecht- he had better choreography to show off his jumps and sky high arabesque. Daniel Jones was an excellent unrefined butch peasant.

   Thanks for those thoughts, Margaret. I'd been wondering about going down to Bristol on Thursday for the schools' matinee, which I think is the same cast (providing I can get on to the Hippodrome's online booking system, which is currently offline!), so might well try.

   I think Daniel Jones stood out from the other male dancers.His performence in giselle was fantastic.
