La Sylphide

November 25, 12:55 PM2:45 PM

$15 – $18

THE BOLSHOI BALLET:  La Sylphide

This performance is an encore HD broadcast from Moscow.

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.

This is a work which marks a turning point in the genre: first, it is the oldest of the classical ballets which are known today, second, the ballet of the same name marks the start of dancing on pointe, third, it is not fortuitous that it was in that ballet that the ballerina — Marie Taglioni, the first ballerina of the romantic era — was to rise on pointe, the sylphide, after all, is a maiden of the air.

Tickets: $15 – $18 Prices include per ticket handling fees.
