giselle

i know i mentioned my latest role as ariel the sprite/spirit/fairy in the tempest. it's only for a few scenes for a bardathon (google it), but i'm very excited nonetheless. i'm trying to be more like ariel, and i'm very inspired by the ballet for this role. one of my favorite ballets in particular: giselle. giselle tells the story of a maiden killed whilst in love, and then a group of desolate female spirits called wilis, who all died heartbroken,  try to induct her. the wilis and the general ethereal feel of the ballet just enchant me and make me feel airy and delicate.

giselle, tulle, pearls, arched spines, and everything in black and white make me feel all divine.

  6. How I wish I could come watch you perform in The Tempest. I'm sure you're going to be so incredible! How cool is it that you get to be a spirit fairy too. I don't think you could get a sweeter part than that.

    How funny you use caps lock too! I thought I was weird for doing that so I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    i love these pictures, they are so beautiful the most beautiful i've seen in a while. i love the tempest, my second favourite shakespeare play first being romeo and juliet. i have a feeling i've seen the film of giselle or maybe i'm mistaking it for the red shoes xxxx
