Originally created in 1988 for the Nederlands Dans Theatre, Kaguyahime was choreographer Jirí Kylián’s first full-scale narrative ballet. Now restaged and distilled to its very essence, Kaguyahime, or Princess Kaguya, tells the 10th-century Japanese folk tale of the moon princess and her rivalling suitors. Set to a score by Japanese composer Maki Ishii, Kaguyahime is a valuable addition to the repertoire of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal by a master of European neoclassical dance.
