Atlanta Ballet opens the 2023|2024 Season with the classical masterwork La Sylphide. Delight in a mythical journey to Scotland, a land of mystery and enchantment, and experience a magical tale of forbidden romance. A young Scotsman falls under the spell of a sylph, a fairy-like spirit who is not of his world. He devotes himself to her, but their romance is doomed and a life together an impossible dream. A work of ethereal beauty, La Sylphide is an enrapturing tragic love story that will pull at the heartstrings.
“Live music, striking scenery and virtuosic dancing – La Sylphide has the power to delight the senses.” – ArtsATL
