This autumn/winter season, we’re performing La Sylphide, a recreation of August Bournonville’s version by Frank Andersen and Eva Kloborg. Bournonville’s production is actually an adaptation of an 1832 French ballet by Filippo Taglioni, which signalled the dawn of a new, Romantic era of ballet, but it is Bournonville’s interpretation that’s still performed around the world. It is not only one of the oldest ballets in existence, but a pillar of the Romantic tradition.
