Presented by the West Australian Ballet
Be moved by the pure joy and beauty of timeless, classical ballet, when we present the cherished tale of La Sylphide.
On the eve of his wedding, Scottish farmer James is tempted by a beautiful winged Sylph who confesses her long-held love for him, but cruelly taunts him with her untouchable, ethereal beauty. Filled with sprites, forest-fills, sylphides and trouble-making witches, we remain true to Bournonville’s work, showcasing the seemingly effortless elegance of powerful, big jumps and rapid footwork that are linked together by soft, slightly rounded and fluid arm movements.
Set in Scotland in the 1830’s, La Sylphide is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballet works and considered a cornerstone of romantic ballet, choreographer August Bournonville first presented this production in Copenhagen in 1836.
