One of the world’s oldest surviving romantic ballets, La Sylphide, which dates back to August Bournonville’s 1836 version, combines the human world with the spiritual when James, a denizen of a small Scottish community – evoked by traditional folk songs in HermanLøvenskiold’s score – is utterly bewitched by a beautiful sylph whom he is unable to touch. This version, adapted by choreographer Johan Kobborg, gleams anew at the Bolshoi Ballet. To purchase tickets by phone please call 901.544.6208.
