Scary Beautiful

Interesting observation about the Wilis

“Skeaping’s production is not necessarily less scary than others, but it conveys terror through beauty: the implacability of the Wilis is all the creepier when they are so soft and sylph-like.”

– Hanna Weibye, Giselle, English National Ballet, London Coliseum,

Paris Opera Ballet (another beauty-is-creepier version)
