La Sylphide
A sylph is an ethereal being that has inhabited European mythology since the ancient Greeks. They are born of pure air and retain their ravishing and seductive beauty for more than 300 years. Sylphs are akin to elf girls and mermaids; they are supernatural, mystical beings that pose grave danger to the souls and minds of men.
A sylph cannot be possessed and may never be touched with erotic intent, lest they lose their crystalline wings and perish.

Choreography: August Bournonville
Music: H.S. Løvenskiold
Set design: Mikael Melbye

Bournonville’s classical ballet will be performed with a poignant new creation by Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, who most recently proved his international calibre in the Dance Mozart! program.
