The Joffrey Ballet

Sylvia presents a young woman at the crossroads of adolescence and womanhood, struggling to find balance between strength and vulnerability and discovering love only through the awakening of her own sensuality. Sylvia is filled with themes of ambition, obsession, unrequited love and lost opportunities. 

John Neumeier, Artistic Director/Chief Choreographer of Hamburg Ballet,  was the first choreographer to modernize the work, incorporating neoclassical expressionist movement and an abstract narrative to reimagine this magnificent female-powered ballet for the 21st century.
