<B>Fey Highland tale of sylphs and swans</B> <BR>From Business Day (South Africa)<P><BR>LA SYLPHIDE, choreographed in 1836 by Frenchman Auguste Bournonville and the signature work of the Royal Danish Ballet, is performed by companies around the world, though it was originally seen as a curiosity. It is a fey Highland tale about a young Scot, James Reuben, who loses his fiancee by chasing an elusive dream. George Balanchine described it as a work that changed ballet history, ushering in the romantic era of sylphs and swan queens, moving between fantasy and reality, with settings that are both ethereal and natural, and dancers who rise on pointe and are lifted magically into the air by their partners.<P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=020425010171&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>
