August Bournonville’s La Sylphide is a beguiling blend of storytelling and dance, complete with vengeful witches and magical forest spirits that will win your heart.
On the morning of his wedding day, a young Scotsman awakens from a dream to see a mysterious and tantalizing Sylph before him. Bewitched and mesmerized by her presence, his obsession with her sets off a fateful sequence of events where joy turns to sorrow, love to betrayal and infatuation to tragedy.
One of the jewels of the Romantic Ballet Era, this masterpiece boasts an enchanting score that will be brought to life by the OBT Orchestra.
