About

AN OTHERWORLDLY CREATURE. A MAN BEWITCHED. THE QUINTESSENTIAL ROMANTIC BALLET

The Australian Ballet presents La Sylphide, in a production by Erik Bruhn after August Bournonville’s 19th century original. A ballet in two acts, La Sylphide tells the tale of the Scottish dreamer James, who is fascinated by a woodland sprite and spurns his fiancée to follow her. Intent on capturing the ethereal beauty for his own, he accepts the help of the vengeful witch Madge, who leads him to his downfall. La Sylphide celebrates the sheer beauty of pure ballet.
