GISELLE. July 2018 SHEILA CHISHOLM reviews
Angela du Preez and Pam Golding, two recently deceased Cape Town City Ballet stalwarts, were honoured, on Friday 6 July, by Giselle’s opening night. These two indomitable women, were giants in their long-term commitment to CTCB.. and have left an “unfillable” void in our local ballet world.
For over a half-century Elizabeth Triegaardt has played significant roles within CTCB’s frame……and now shows an extraordinary talent for schooling traditional ballet blanc corps de ballet to meet the highest standards. The female corps’ togetherness and style created the eerie supernatural quality Act 2 demands. … backed by equally implacable leading Wilis, Hannah Ward and Claire Spector, Rosamund Ford turned in a fine performance as the cold heartless Myrtha. And Daniel Szybkowski as Albrecht, blended well to Laura Bosenberg’s Giselle, bringing emotional depth to this ballet drama. Bosenberg’s.fresh approach to the “mad scene” made it one of the most heart breaking yet seen at Artscape. . Xola Putye’s physical looks ideally suit Hilarian; of note in particular was his excellent mime craft.
