   Emily - one of the things that makes Giselle my favourite classics is the variety of interpretation possible in the leading roles. Both ladies gave superlative readings last season - I would suggest you see both. If I had to choose, then Tamara Rojo would be my number one

   Oh, what an impossible question to answer (and, of course, the RB has some other excellent Giselles as well). Cojocaru's was so full of life in act one that it almost broke your heart to think that she'd be betrayed and dead by the end of it, but I thought she remained rather too human in the second act, when she was a wili. However, that was only her debut, and she's only done a total of 2 performances thus far. Rojo's, from what I've seen so far, is rather more dramatic in the first half and much more otherworldly in the second, as witnessed by her performance of the pas de deux in Mukhameov's gala back in September, which most of us thought was quite stunning.

Just thought: an alternative answer to the question might be "Whichever one is lucky enough to have Johan Kobborg as her Albrecht" - I'm sure the quality of the partner has to make a difference in this case .

   Absolutely Alison. Kobborg was a huge asset to both ladies last year. His entrechats in the final solo were so brilliant, the best I have ever seen.

   Oh, I know . I remember just sitting there (probably with my mouth open!) being amazed that even he could do them that well!

   Well both are excellent but Alina would get my vote. But my vote for Albrecht would be Carlos Acosta - for passion and conviction and charisma. But I don't disagree about Kobborg's entrechats!
