Among the most acclaimed ballet films ever made, as well as the only document of one of the last century's most glorious dance partnerships, Carla Fracci and Erik Bruhn, this award-winning production was hailed as "an achievement that should have a tremendous impact on the world of ballet... and a triumph for the American Ballet Theatre" (Dance Magazine). In David Blair's choreography of arguably the greatest of all classical ballets, Fracci is "a Giselle around which legends are wreathed... Bruhn is unequalled as a danseur noble" (Clive Barnes, The New York Times)
