Jiří Kylián's black & white ballets( Visual )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ballets represented in the Black and White series are arresting examples of Jiří Kylián's style and fully justify his reputation as one of the most inventive and daring choreographers on today's dance scene. The vitality of his work is underpinned by a musicality so innate that his dancers and the music they move to seem to spring from the same impulse
L'histoire du soldat by Igor Stravinsky( Visual )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The soldier agrees to be the guest of the devil for three days, during which time he will teach him to play the fiddle
Peter & the wolf by Sergey Prokofiev( Visual )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 258 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

4 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in 4 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Czech-born Jiří Kylián was inspired by the beautiful music of his compatriot, Janáček, to create this fluid, spacious, romantic ballet which has become a milestone in contemporary choreography. The forceful fanfares of Janáček's music are matched by a ceaselessly energetic and exuberant display of movement, creating and image which carries through the composer's intention of evoking the spirit of the "modern, free Czech."

Jiří Kylián's Car Men and other ballets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Car Men: Exactly 20 years separate Jiří Kylián's solo Silent Cries and his black-and-white film, Car Men, made in 2006 in collaboration with the Dutch filmmaker, Boris Paval Cone. What unites the two works is the sheer expressiveness of the dance on the one hand, and the distinctive facial gestures and body language of the dancer Sabine Kupferberg on the other. Kupferberg is the one who pulls the strings in Car Men, victim and plotter in equal measure, prepared at all times to stand up to life's problems - as well as to her three co-actors Escamillo, Don Jose, and Micaela - with humor and enigmatic wit. And so at the end of Kylián's unusual, slapstick-like tragicomedy, she simply abandons her three colleagues, self-assured and incorrigible - just like her role model Carmen. Silent Cries: This video records a performance of Jiří Kylián's ballet, Silent Cries, danced by the Nederlands Dans Theater. La Cathédrale Engloutie: This video records a performance of Jiří Kylián's ballet, La Cathédrale Engloutie, danced by the Nederlands Dans Theater
