Pacific Northwest Ballet dancers performing excerpts from Peter Boal's new staging of Giselle. The ballet features reconstructed choreography by dance scholar Doug Fullington and Giselle scholar Marian Smith based on Stepanov notation circa 1903 and French sources from the 1840s. PNB is the first American company in modern times to use the Stepanov notations from the Harvard Theatre Collection for a ballet production. Peter Boal discusses the production with Fullington and Smith. PNB dancers Carrie Imler, Carla Körbes, James Moore, and Seth Orza perform.
