ZZ BOLSHOI : La Sylphide

The ultimate romantic masterpiece

On the day of his wedding, the young Scotsman James is awoken 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 the Danish Bournonville style. Restaged for the Bolshoi by Bournonville expert Johan Kobborg, this production is the ultimate romantic masterpiece.

Performance: 2 hours
Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.
Music: Herman Severin Løvenskiold
Libretto: Adolphe Nourrit and Filippo Taglioni
Choreography: Johan Kobborg after August Bournonville


This season presents the greatest classics for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet.

Four classical ballets (La Sylphide, Don Quixote, La Bayadère and The sleeping Beauty) will be presented along with the beloved Christmas tale The Nutcracker and the jazzy ballet The Golden Age, that can be seen only at the Bolshoi. Carmen Suite-Petruska, Edward Clug’s new creation will close the season, with two very popular characters.

The Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.
