First Semi-final Conclusion To have come this far and fall at the final hurdle must be excruciating, even if, as a losing semi-finalist, the players pocket E28,500 each. The afternoon should see

with Peter Wright and artists of the Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet
In the second Master Class on Giselle, Peter Wright rehearses the second act, the famous 'white' act. In the first programme, set in Giselle's village, it was the acting and the storytelling that was important. In Act 2, set at Giselle's graveside with long sections of lyrical dancing, Peter Wright concentrates on the dancers' techniques as Giselle fights to save Albrecht from the evil Queen of the Wilis.
