An ethereal winged creature, a Sylph, is in James's eyes the perfect, though unattainable, woman. La Sylphide is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets. On the day of his wedding, the young Scotsman James is awoken with a kiss from a heavenly winged creature. Entranced by the Sylph’s beauty, James risks everything to pursue an unattainable love… A treasure in the Danish Bournonville style, restaged for the Bolshoi by Bournonville expert Johan Kobborg, this production is the ultimate romantic masterpiece.
