Why See Los Angeles Ballet - Serenade & La Sylphide?
Two for one
Be swept away by the mastery of the Los Angeles Ballet as they present two glorious and iconic masterpieces from Balanchine and Bournonville, both set to irrepressible scores by Tchaikovsky.
A landmark in the career of balletmaster George Balanchine, Serenade in all its blue tutu'ed glory was the first he created on American soil, marking the begining of his storied career here. Conceived as a lesson in stage technique, he added the realities of the rehearsal room into the steps, ending up with this spirited and cherished work.
Originated by Filippo Taglioni in 1832, it was August Bournonville's revival of this haunting fairytale that made it the romantic era legend it is today. Through delicate and poignant choreography, the story of a young man whose heart is spirited away by a Sylph on the eve of his wedding becomes a stirring and heart-breaking stage drama.
