Ballet Theatre of Maryland: Les Sylphides and Other Works
This one-act ballet celebrates the beauty of romantic ballet with a setting evocative of the Halloween season.
Les Sylphides, to the music of Chopin, follows the “poet” as he dances with ghostly sylphs through the romantic atmosphere of a moonlit park. Described as “romantic reverie”, this one-act ballet celebrates the beauty of romantic ballet with a setting evocative of the Halloween season.
Joining Les Sylphides on this program will be Sapphire Romance by Ballet Theatre of Maryland Founding Artistic Director Edward Stewart and Hijinks and Lullabies by guest choreographer Keith Lee. Lee, master choreographer, former American Ballet Theatre soloist, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater ballet master, has created Hijinks and Lullabies as a world premiere for Ballet Theatre of Maryland.
