Artem Ovcharenko is rehearsing for the premiere of the new version of the old Giselle with the choreographer Alexei Ratmansky.

Alexei is trying to stage a version which is as close as possible to the original version based on records of Henri Justamant (1860s) and Nicholas Sergeyev (1899 and 1903). Artem will make his debut as Albrecht on the 22nd and 24th of November with Ekaterina Krysanova in the title role.
