English National Ballet are the winner of the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards 2016 for Oustanding Company. Experience their power and beauty at the London Coliseum this January.

This programme features Roland Petit’s Le Jeune Homme Et La Mort, and the beloved Romantic ballet La Sylphide.

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 is also renowned as a showcase for the world’s best male dancers.

La Sylphide is one of the jewels of Romantic ballet. On the morning of his wedding, 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, this beautiful production has been lovingly recreated from the original classic. It is accompanied by an enchanting score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
