NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

Inspired by the pastoral drama Aminta by Torquato Tasso, Sylvia ou la nymphe de Diane
premiered at the Paris Opéra in 1876, featuring mythological splendours, nymphs, satyrs,
shepherds and Olympian gods, but it was Delibes’s extraordinary score that stole the show. Tchaikovsky greatly admired its elegant music, full of rhythms, harmonies and melodies. Following the French tradition, Manuel Legris created his version for the Wiener Staatsballett in 2018; co-produced with La Scala, it now opens the new Season and promises fireworks. Legris has given new life and a new look to one of the great classics of the nineteenth century, with freshness, energy, strong characters and virtuosity exalted by the great visual impact of Luisa Spinatelli’s sets and costumes. As at the creation in Vienna, Kevin Rhodes will be on the podium.
