Top dancers of the Royal Danish Ballet, revered as the world’s third oldest ballet company, come together to bring the best of August Bournonville to The Joyce. Featuring distinctive repertoire from classical ballets such as La Sylphide, Napoli, and A Folktale, “the skill and charm with which these performers put across this choreography is glorious to behold” (The New York Times). This program is not only an eye-opening window into the world of sylphs and trolls, but also a study of love and belief in the human spirit.
