This series provides a mix of old and new.
La Sylphide is heralded as one of the most important ballets of all time and the first ballet ever to be danced on pointe. When a fairy attracts a young Scotsman on the eve of his wedding, he faces a difficult choice between reality and impossible love with a spirit.
Balanchine’s vigorously paced and technically demanding Allegro Brillante simultaneously showcases precision and pure abandon of movement, creating a thrilling experience for audiences.
Event begins at 7:00PM
