One of the most gripping works in the history of twentieth-century dance is without a doubt Kurt Jooss’ anti-war ballet The Green Table. Because Dutch National Ballet always strives to offer a programme that is as relevant as possible, it feels like the right choice to revive this important and, unfortunately, currently so topical choreography now, in this time of war. We have, therefore, chosen to replace the original season opener Celebrate! with the programme Shadows. In addition to The Green Table, this programme features a beautiful, hopeful work by Wayne McGregor and a world premiere by Milena Sidorova to Mozart’s Symphony No. 25.
