A great showpiece for the Company, Sylvia by Manuel Legris has given new life to one of the great classics of the nineteenth century, with powerful characters and feats of virtuosity, exalted by Luisa Spinatelli’s décor and costumes. Sylvia ou la Nymphe de Diane debuted at Palais Garnier in 1876 with an extraordinary score by Délibes. In the wake of French tradition, Legris maintains the original spirit, adding a fresh touch to a timeless story of mythological inspiration to appeal to today’s audience.
