Masterful ballets about war, power and hope


One of the most poignant works in twentieth-century dance history is Kurt Jooss’ anti-war ballet De Groene Tafel. Because Dutch National Ballet always strives to offer the most relevant program possible, it feels like the right choice to bring back this important and, unfortunately, so current choreography, especially now, in this time of war.

That’s why we chose to use the original season opener Celebrate! replace it with a program called Shadows. In addition to The Green Table, in this program we present a beautiful, hopeful work by Wayne McGregor and a world premiere by Milena Sidorova on Mozart’s Symphony No. 25.
