Creole Giselle DVD
The Dance Theatre of Harlem brings its Creole ballet hit "Giselle" to DVD for the first time! Arthur Mitchell's lauded adaptation of the classic ballet features a poor black girl with two loves: dance, and the new boy in the neighborhood. Though he's secretly from an upper class and is already engaged, the young man lets himself be charmed by Giselle's innocence. Virginia Johnson dances as Giselle in this 2005 release, recorded during a performance in Denmark.
