English National Ballet presents a double bill featuring Kenneth MacMillan's masterpiece Song of the Earth and Frank Andersen's recreation of the beloved classic La Sylphide, performed for the first time in the UK.

Song of the Earth
Inspired by Mahler's haunting song cycle Das Lied von der Erde, MacMillan brings music, poetry and choreography together to capture the fragility of life, and its constant renewal. Three central figures portray the bittersweet reality of love, loss, and mortality: a Woman, a Man and an enigmatic Messenger.
First performed in 1965, Song of the Earth was a point of departure for MacMillan's choreography, surprising and captivating audiences and critics. English National Ballet is honoured to add this revered MacMillan work to its repertoire.

La Sylphide
On the morning of his wedding to his sweet fiance Effy, James awakens from a dream to see a mysterious and tantalising Sylphide before him. His obsession with her sets off a fateful sequence of events where joy turns to sorrow, love to betrayal and infatuation to tragedy.
August Bournonville's classic Romantic ballet is devotedly recreated by Eva Kloborg and Frank Andersen in this captivating production, and is accompanied by an enchanting score, played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
