Léo Delibes


A ravishing fantasy set amid verdant forests and majestic temples, Ashton’s mythological love story unites the huntress Sylvia and a lovelorn shepherd with the divine intervention of the deity Eros. At its heart, Sylvia boasts an incomparable role for its heroine showcasing her dramatic range and astonishing technique, performed against a lushly romantic, rococo setting to a splendid score by Léo Delibes.
