La Cathédrale Engloutie
Jiri Kylián‘s ballet is set to a composition by Claude Debussy which was inspired by a fifteenth-century Breton legend. This tells how a cathedral was built on a seashore as a symbol to the Almighty that he would reign over the people. But they led godless lives and, as a result, the cathedral disappeared below the waves. This performance was recorded in studio.

Nederlands Dans Theater: the name has long stood for innovative dance theater on the cutting edge. But when Czech choreographer Jiří Kylián works with the ballet, something completely new is created.
