Sinfonietta / Carmen

Sinfonietta / Carmen


When the Czech musician Leoš Janáček (1854-1928) composed Sinfonietta (1926), he wanted to project a modern image of the Czech Republic that had been recently liberated from foreign occupation. The ballet created by his countryman Jiří Kylián (1947) in 1978 for the Nederlands Dans Theater, showcases a joyful and vibrant choreography, where dancers’ leaps are constantly filling the stage. In 2018, the Argentinian choreographer and regisseur Alejandro Cervera directed Carmen, the popular opera by George Bizet, for the first time, but this time he will create a choreography specially commissioned by Teatro Colón for its Resident Ballet.
