  • to 14. 11. 2019 19.00
  • fr 15. 11. 2019 19.00 — II. PREMIÉRA

During three special evenings the Czech National Ballet will introduce not only the work of the Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián but also a significant quest — the Korean National Ballet.

This company will perform here for the first time and will enrich the evening with another Kylián choreography – Forgotten Land.

In addition to the special appearance of the Korean Ballet, a Czech premiere of Kylián’s choreography Gods and Dogs will take place at the National Theatre during this time. It is one of his more recent works and it is a great honour to have it in our repertoire.

The mosaic of three exceptional evenings will be complemented with two other works of Jiří Kylián — Petite Mort and Sechs Tänze danced by the Czech National Ballet.
