This production of Three Ballets by Jiri Kylian is part of Arthaus Musik’s Elegance Series, which is a collection of ballet performances from the world’s best dance houses featuring the greatest choreographers and celebrating the legacy of legendary choreographer Marius Petipa. + The first featured ballet, Bella Figura, was described by Jiri Kylian as “A journey in time- light and space, addressing the ambiguity of aesthetics- performances and dreams. Finding beauty in a grimace- in a knot of the mind- or in a physical contortion. It is like trying to perform a balancing act on the string of our umbilical cord. + Both Sleepless and Birth-Day are based on music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Kylian relied heavily on Mozart’s music, as he believed Mozart was “the greatest example of someone whose time between day ‘A’ and day ‘Z’ was painfully limited, but who nevertheless has understood life in all its richness…”

Image Elegance - The Art of Toer van Schayk & Wayne Eagl
In 1996 the Dutch National Ballet presented its own version of the famous fairytale ballet for the first time. It is a magical production that has won the hearts of more than 250,000 people to date. Choreographers Toer van Schayk and Wayne Eagling created a Nutcracker for the children and adults of today. It is more dynamic and exciting, and less sweet than usual. They also chose to give a Dutch twist to their interpretation of the story, with skaters on the canals and a living room that transforms into a snowy forest. Unlike the original story, the production by Eagling and Van Schayk (who also designed the delightful sets and costumes) does not take place on Christmas Eve in a German town, but during St. Nicholas celebrations in Amsterdam, around 1810. Special Feature: Behind the Scenes
