Bolshoi Ballet La Sylphide on Film
On his wedding day, the young Scotsman James is awakened with a kiss from an ethereal winged creature, a Sylph.
Entranced by her beauty, James risks everything to pursue an unattainable love. La Sylphide is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets, and a treasure in Danish ballet master August Bournonville’s style. Staged for the Bolshoi by Bournonville expert Johan Kobborg, this production is the ultimate romantic masterpiece.
