La Sylphide is one of the world's oldest surviving romantic ballets. August Bournonville's version is an adaptation of an 1832 French ballet of the same name.
In a Scottish manor house on the morning of his wedding, James wakes up from a dream to discover a beautiful winged sylph before him. Entranced by the vision, he attempts to capture her but she escapes and vanishes. James joins in wedding preparations but gradually realises that his dreams go far beyond the walls of the manor house and that his obsession with the winged creature risks his own happiness and that of his fiancée Effie.
