A humorous trip through time to learn valuable lessons in love. Count Guiccioli's infidelities cause marital strife between him and his wife and threaten both their anniversary celebration and the burgeoning love between Amynta and Sylvia, their servants. It is left to the God of Love, Eros (in disguise as a gardener), to reconcile their differences as he takes them, and us, back to the age of mythical Rome in order to teach them all a lesson about Love. David Bintley's time-hopping comedy features music by L?o Delibes, the composer of Copp?lia, and a colourful cast of Gods and Goddesses, slave girls and pirates. Tchaikovsky wrote of Delibes' score, that his own music for Swan Lake was 'poor stuff' in comparison. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Sylvia website
