In this double bill at the London Coliseum, English National Ballet presents Roland Petit’s Le Jeune Homme et La Mort and Frank Andersen’s recreation of the beloved classic La Sylphide, performed for the first time in London.
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.
On the morning of his wedding to his sweet fiancée Effy, James glimpses a mysterious forest spirit, and becomes obsessed with her. This sets off a fateful sequence of events where joy turns to sorrow and love to betrayal. From joyous party scenes to lyrical duets, August Bournonville’s classic ballet has been devotedly recreated by Eva Kloborg and Frank Andersen. This captivating production is accompanied by an enchanting score, played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
