During three special evenings the Czech National Ballet introduced not only the work of the Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián but also a significant quest – the Korean National Ballet. This company performed here for the first time and enriched 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 took 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 was complemented with two other works of Jiří Kylián – Petite Mort and Sechs Tänze danced by the Czech National Ballet.
