About the Show Less...

Ashton's park-life ballet is presented alongside Bournonville's tragic love story. Read More >

In Ashton’s Les Rendezvous, a public park is brought to life through both witty and technically demanding dance. Fleeting, youthful encounters transpire to the music of Auber, as arranged by Constant Lambert.

Bournonville’s La Sylphide is presented in a new production by Johan Kobborg, who also plays the part of the teacher in some performances of The Lesson. The story of lost love sees James leave his bride-to-be to pursue his infatuation with the beautiful sylph. When a witch steps in, James’s dreams are shattered.
