La Sylphide

This week I photographed the dress rehearsal for Carolina Ballet's premiere of "La Sylphide". La Sylphide is one of the world's oldest surviving romantic ballets. This particular version was by the Danish balletmaster August Bournonville (1805-1879). There's still a chance to see the ballet this weekend at the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh, North Carolina. The last show is on 4 April. Here's a flavour of the images I took using an Olympus E-3 SLR with a 35-100m f2 lens - superb for low light conditions.
