Screened as part of the 2018 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season Part 2. From the Bolshoi Ballet.

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.
