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

Le Jeune Homme et la Mort follows a young man hopelessly in love with a cruel mistress who torments him. Full of drama, it climaxes into an unforgettable, tragic ending.

This 'ever-fascinating work of art' (Financial Times) has a libretto by Jean Cocteau, and is performed to Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor. It is renowned as a showcase for the world's best male dancers.

La Sylphide

On the morning of his wedding to his sweet fiancee 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.
