"Artistic director Gennadi Nedvigin’s choice of such a seminal work represents his ambition to deepen and forward Atlanta Ballet’s connection to classical forms. Because the choreography is theatrical, personable and demanding, dancers must become gracious and generous, confident and real. This could be a test of the company’s new resolve." - George Staib, ArtsATL

"Ultimately, though, it's the heartbreaking story that captivates. Yes, it is a romance. And a quest. And a fairy tale. It's also the most human conflict around. Who has not looked back in misty memory and questioned all the 'safe' choices? Who has not, like James, desperately yearned for another life—one in which we trade the domesticated reel for a pas de deux in untamed Highland wilds?

'La Sylphide' is an impossible love story and a classical romance. It's also a ballet for anyone who has ever pursued the predictable, rational path and been suddenly swept away by the mist-whispered hope of something infinitely finer." - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
