Les Sylphides- Giselle
The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historical performances by some of the world's greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.
These two exceptional studio performances represent some of the earliest filmed dance material from the BBC archives. Les Sylphides, introduced by Tamara Karsavina, one of the founder of modern British ballet, and the 1958 performance of Giselle both feature stellar international casts embodying a bygone era.
