La Sylphide by Bolshoi

La Sylphide


chor. August Bournonville  (1836)
recension  Johan Kobborg (2005)
Bolshoi Ballet
simulcast 30 September 2012 from Moscow
with  Vyacheslav Lopatin (James) and Ekaterina Krysanova (Sylph)

Johan Kobborg has added some imaginative touches to the great classic, and Vyacheslav Lopatin was beautiful and exciting in virtuoso Bournonville style. This was the first broadcast of the season and  quite wonderful.
