The Lost Ballet

La Sylphide, as we know it today, is a ballet in two acts choreographed by August Bournonville with music by Herman Severin Løvenskiold. However, the original ballet was choreographed by Filippo Taglioni who created it for his daughter, Maria Taglioni, the first danseuse to ever dance with pointe shoes. This version of the iconic Romantic ballet had music written by Jean-Madeliene Schnietzhoeffer.

Even though notes and drawings still exists of Taglioni’s masterpiece, the original choreography is invariably lost.
