La Sylphide vs Giselle

I watched La Sylphide, so I researched some background information on Giselle. The ballet is a romantic classic, and it was choreographed through a process of collaboration, or multiple choreographers working on it.  On one website I read that Giselle is still commonly performed in companies while La Sylphide has faded away. I do not know if that is true or not, but I don’t think it should have faded away because I really enjoyed it. The costumes were so different than any other ballet, and the storyline was so corky and interesting so it keeps the audience’s interest. Although I am sad I didn’t get to watch Giselle, I’m glad I watched La Sylphide because it was a great ballet and so beautiful, especially the Sylph!
