  • The longstanding and enormously successful Ballet Director of the Hamburg Ballet, John Neumeier, created his famous adaptation of Sylvia in 1997 on invitation for the Paris Ballet.
  • TDK presents a performance of this choreography from the Opéra de Paris with a line-up of soloists that includes some of the best dancers of today: Aurélie Dupont, Marie-Agnès Gillot; Manuel Legris, Nicolas Le Riche and José Martinez, all étoiles at the Paris Ballet and stars of the international dance scene.
  • Neumeier's contemporary choreography, created with the Opéra de Paris ballet, transforms Sylvia into a modern parable about the difficulties of loving. The characters are stripped of their mythological trappings to take on a more human, more universal dimension.
  • Supported by the cautiously simple but very effective stage and costume design by the Greek painter Yannis Kokkos, emphasising the dancing rather than dominating it, John Neumeier has created a ballet that is as timeless as the mythological fable it portrays.
