One of the oldest surviving classical masterpieces and August Bournonville’s most lasting contributions to dance, La Sylphide is a magical story of forbidden love and heartbreak. Set in the mist shrouded Scottish Highlands, a land of mystery and enchantment, a young Scotsman falls under the spell of a sylph, a fairy-like spirit. He devotes himself to her, but their romance is doomed and a life together an impossible dream. A work of ethereal beauty, La Sylphide is an enrapturing tragic love story that will pull at the heartstrings and dazzle with its technical fireworks.
