Told entirely through dance, orchestra, and facial expressions, Giselle, Ballet In Two Acts tells the story of a beautiful woman (Ferri) who is betrayed by her lover. Giselle is driven to madness and dies of a broken heart, only to return later to haunt him. The sets and costumes by Alexandrew Benios are exquisite, sure to delight cultured ballet lovers.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits pleasing quality, with sharp and detailed images. Colors are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Shots of the entire stage are slightly soft in appearance, but overall the picture is solid and satisfying. Occasional pixelization and the slightest edge enhancement is noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
