Sylvia: Pas de Deux

Choreography by: George Balanchine

Music by: Léo Delibes

Returning to the repertory after more than two decades, this delightfully romantic pas de deux is made all the more charming by fairy tale costumes and Léo Delibes’ soothing strings.

This ballet is in the tradition of a grand pas de deux, with entrée, adagio, two solos, and a coda.
