Le Jeune Homme et La Mort and La Sylphide

London Coliseum, St Martin's Lane London WC2N 4ES

Prices: £16.00 to 84.00

English National Ballet returns with a double bill featuring Roland Petit’s Le Jeune Homme et la Mort and Frank Andersen’s recreation of the beloved classic La Sylphide.

Le Jeune Homme et la Mort

Last performed by English National Ballet in 2013, Roland Petit’s Le Jeune Homme et la Mort follows a young man hopelessly in love with a cruel and faithless mistress. He waits desperately for her, but when she finally arrives, she torments him. Distraught and confused, the young man succumbs to his despair. Performed to Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, with a libretto by Jean Cocteau, Petit's ballet is a searing display of unrequited love and its tragic consequences.

La Sylphide

On the morning of his wedding to his sweet fiancée Effy, James awakens from a dream to see a mysterious and tantalising Sylphide before him. His obsession with her sets off a fateful sequence of events where joy turns to sorrow, love to betrayal and infatuation to tragedy.

August Bournonville’s classic Romantic ballet is devotedly recreated by Eva Kloborg and Frank Andersen in this captivating production, and is accompanied by an enchanting score, played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
