14 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kaguyahime is one of Japan's oldest fairytales. The story of the mysterious Moon Princess inspired Jiří Kylián to create a full-length ballet and to commission a score from the Japanese composer Maki Ishii. Through its use of Western percussion instruments and Japanese drums, the work combines both Occidental and Oriental elements, its rhythmic vitality providing a musical structure for the poetic tale. Woodwind instruments extend the tonal color, as does the use of traditional Gagaku music from the Japanese court"--Container

Peter and the wolf by Sergey Prokofiev( Visual )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These ballet recordings, based on the music of the French composer Maurice Ravel and the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, are recommended to every child, youth, and adult whose heart and mind are open for a musical and dancing encounter with the world of fairy tales. Both of them are about a small boy and his dealings with the nature surrounding him. Despite their similarities, though, the two works are fundamentally different. It is the difference between the two which makes this combination so appealing. There are vast differences in content, the structure of the plot, the type of composition and the treatment of orchestral instruments, on the one hand. On the other, the means used by the Nederlands Dans Theater and the Royal Ballet School to realize the material make "L'enfant et les sortilèges" and "Peter and the Wolf" two entirely unique works. "L'enfant et les sortilèges" presents a fantastic ballet fairy tale rich in witty inspirations in dance, costume, and stage design with the choreography and design of Jiri Kylian and the pioneering Parisian opera under Lorin Maazel. This production was awarded several prizes. And rightly so, for nary any other ballet has ever been met with such enthusiasm and amusement while deeply touching its audiences
