Ballett: Sylvia

Ballet: Sylvia

Choreography: Manuel Legris nach Louis Mérante u.a.
Music: Léo Delibes

Premiere: 10. 11. 2018

The names of Louis Mérante, Léo Staats, Serge Lifar, Albert Aveline and Lycette
Darsonval represent a very typically “French” tradition of the ballet Sylvia, a tradition
with which Manuel Legris also feels a special connection. His new version of the ballet,
which is also his second full-length choreography for the Wiener Staatsballett, focuses
primarily on heterogeneous possibilities for the unfolding of pure dancing and thus
also provides picturesque moments in Luisa Spinatelli’s richly detailed staging. First
performed in 1876, the work, not least because of its music, is now one of the most
outstanding ballets of the 19th century.
