About the Event

A new addition in the Repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet, Manuel Legris' Sylvia on music by Léo Delibes.

New to the repertoire

Ballet in three acts
Choreography after Louis Mérante
Libretto by Manuel Legris and Jean‐François Vazelle after Jules Barbier and Jacques de Reinach

Fauns, dryads and shepherds: such is the bucolic world inhabited by Sylvia, the nymph of Diana, goddess of the hunt. Compelled to remain chaste, will she have to renounce her love for Aminta, just as Diana had to sacrifice her passion for Endymion?

Originally conceived by Louis Mérante, Sylvia was the first ballet to be performed at the newly‐opened Palais Garnier in 1876, to a brilliant score by Léo Delibes, who also composed Coppélia. But it is the version by Manuel Legris, a Paris Opera Étoile dancer and the director of the Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company, that is making its repertoire debut.

The choreographer brings psychological depth to the libretto by adding a prologue portraying Diana’s conflict‐ridden world and gives greater prominence to the male roles.
