Program

La Sylphide is one of the world's oldest surviving romantic ballets, dating back to August Bournonville's 1836 version. The version presented today has been adapted by choreographer Johan Kobborg, and gleams anew at the Bolshoi Ballet. In La Sylphide, the human realm of a small Scottish community - evoked by traditional folk songs in Herman Løvenskiold's score - meets the spiritual when James, a classic Romantic hero, is utterly bewitched by a beautiful sylph whom he is unable to touch.
