Boca Ballet Theatre presents La Sylphide

April 8, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - April 9, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

One of the oldest ballets still commonly performed, La Sylphide ushered in the beautiful, romantic era of ballet and remains popular today.  Directed and choreographed by Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin, La Sylphide is his interpretation of the Bournville classic and will feature New York City Ballet principal dancers Megan Fairchild and Gonzalo Garcia.

In Act I, the Scotsman James wakes from a dream on the morning of his wedding to see a beautiful winged sylph before him.  Elusive and playful, she professes her love for him.  James’ obsessive pursuit of the otherworldly creature leads him to abandon his fiancée Effie and follow the sylph into the dangerous realm of the forest spirits.  Here, he realizes that in reaching for unattainable love, he has lost everything.
