On Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 July, the National Ballet Academy is presenting its end-of-year performances, entitled Dancers of Tomorrow. Tickets are now on sale for the performances in Dutch National Opera & Ballet – the home of Dutch National Ballet. The keyword for this new edition of Dancers of Tomorrow is diversity.
Besides classical showpieces like Marius Petipa’s nineteenth-century Paquita (in Rachel Beaujean’s version) and Gregor Seyffert’s spectacular Bolero, you will see Atomos, one of the highlights of the oeuvre of leading British choreographer Wayne McGregor, as well as some new works created especially on and for the students.
The Dutch National Ballet’s Junior Company will also be performing in this edition of Dancers of Tomorrow, dancing Ernst Meisner’s energetic and successful Revelry, a piece that evokes the atmosphere of a high-spirited party.
For the first time in the more than 30-year history of the Dutch National Ballet Academy (NBA), Het Balletorkest is set to accompany Dansers van Morgen (Dancers of Tomorrow). Het Balletorkest is the orchestra of Dutch National Ballet and Nederlands Dans Theater. All the choreographies on the programme that are set to an orchestral score will be accompanied by Het Balletorkest.
