Great Valentines Day Present!
The work that, more than any other, established many of the central themes and conventions of Romantic ballet, La Sylphide remains to this day not just a historical landmark, but a vital and thrilling example of the art of storytelling in dance. The ballet relates the story of a young Scottish farmer, James, who, on the eve of their wedding, abandons his betrothed, Effie, after being enticed away to the forest by the ethereal Sylphide of the title. But when the Sylphide dies and Effie marries another, James is left tragically alone.
Must see performance!
