Albrecht was Friedemann’s first ever lead role, and will therefore always hold a special place in his heart. As such, Friedemann is excited to reprise this role in Patrice Bart’s version of Giselle, based on the original choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, with the sublime Polina Semionova and Ballett Zürich on 30 May for one performance only.
