let’s start with sinfonietta, This work was seen in Buenos Aires when the Netherlands Ballet Theater in The Hague was brought to the Teatro Colón in 1995, with works from various periods over the years by its resident director and choreographer: the giant Jiri Kylian.

This artist, already of Czech origin, said informally here in Buenos Aires: “sinfonietta It’s a dinosaur.” The work was premiered about twenty years ago and For him it was a distant stage in his career.,
