DVD/Videos: Giselle?

Recommended Posts

I have 3 Giselle DVDs which I try to analyse to help understand the steps. I have 2 questions ( really thousands)

In the Metsenseva DVD the second new wili's variation has a beautiful little hand movement where she turns the left hand in a little gesture that is meltingly beautiful. Has this got a special name?

Also I have the Austrlian Ballet Geilgud DVD with Christina Walsh as Giselle - everything about it seems to me really sweet and delicate but some people say Walsh is not technically good. Can anyone tell me why this might be. I can see that she doesnt do big extensions but the whole thing seems emotionally sound and visually pleasing. Any comments?
