As soon as I heard there was a creole version of Giselle I was very intrigued. Since the story line was a little different I wanted to see how that affected the performance. I just have to say I absolutely loved Virginia Johnson. I thought all of her movement were very graceful and controlled, she was flawless in this performance. One of the main differences I noticed was the costume color. The “willie” costumes in this version were not quite as bright as those in Giselle, and the lighting was a brighter purple-y color as opposed to the dark blue in Giselle. I also thought the music sounded lower and that this dance is the Creole Giselle appeared more loving as opposed to the traditional Giselle in which the movements seemed a little faster and more almost torturous.
