19:00 La Sylphide
Ballet in two acts to music by Herman Severin Levenskiold. 105 min. Libretto by Adolphe Nourrit and Philippo Taglioni. Choreography by August Bournonville. La Sylphide was the first major Romantic ballet and it is one of the oldest still regularly performed. It remains to this day not just a historical landmark, but a vital and thrilling example of the art of storytelling in dance. The ballet relates 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.
