The National Ballet’s remount of their acclaimed production of Giselle opens tonight at the Four Seasons Centre, with Greta Hodgkinson in the title role and Guillaume Côté as her treacherous lover Albrecht. Yesterday, Toronto Life photo editor Daniel Neuhaus dropped by the theatre to capture the cast as they ran through their dress rehearsal. Check out the gallery to see the principals getting ready, the ethereal beauty of Desmond Heeley’s costumes and an impressively casual display of Côté’s flexibility.
