La Sylphide, choreographed by Fillippo Taglioni, was premiered at the Paris Opera in 1832 amid the Romantic movement in Europe. It became a synonymous with Romantic ballet. It introduced many of the elements that dominated the Romantic movement--poetic scene with female dancers as supernatural beings in white tule, called 'ballet blanc'.
The Tokyo Ballet brings Pierre Lacotte's version of La Sylphide. Based on the Taglioni version, it was choreographed for the Paris Opera Ballet by Lacotte who brought new life to a masterpiece by collecting and assembling the pieces of the original sources.
Pierre Lacotte himself has had much confidence in Artistic Director Yukari Saito as repetiteur of La Sylphide, and the ballet has been an essential part of The Tokyo Ballet's repertoire. La Sylphide will close the 55th Anniversary of The Tokyo Ballet.
