Marianela Nuñez on Giselle

giselle-nunez-muntagirov-croh-tristam-kenton4The Royal Ballet principal speaks to Zoë Anderson about Giselle on stage and on screen

Nuñez speaks a mile a minute, sketching out movements to illustrate a point, happily miming her own reactions.

You share a curious relationship with bygone performers you adore and aspire to emulate, yet whose legacy you must uphold and re-interpret on a nightly basis. Even being on the same stage as they once were can feel like dancing on sacred ground. However, good entertainment relies on new thinkers and creators to push the boundaries and, without this forward momentum, art can never evolve.
