Description 1 online resource (24 minutes)
Summary This studio recording, featuring the Nederlands Dans Theater, captures a scintillating performance of Kylián's ballet inspired by the music of his Czech compatriot, Janácek. It is danced against a backdrop of the Bohemian countryside, created by Walter Nobbe, and expresses his emotional attachment to his homeland. He chose the piece because it stands as an ode to freedom, beauty and the joy of living, and the result is a ballet full of energetic exuberance, combined with some moving lyric passages
