"This work – "firstborn" of romantic ballets who repeatedly, appeared disappeared from a domestic scene, and our theatre not an exception, – the artistic director of ballet troupe of the theatre Natalya Matus-Marchuk says. – For our troupe very well that "La Sylphide" comes back to the repertoire – stylistics and roots of the ballet are useful to our actors as Augustus Burnonvilya's choreography trains them in the movement, in images, poses. In the ballet there is a certain style which promotes self-organization of soloists. And it concerns everything – a ducking, each finger... It is a peculiar facet of the technology of execution.
