A celebration of ballet

A rare opportunity to see all of the company’s principal dancers on stage – the Gala is the only production in which they can all be seen together in a single evening. ?

The programme includes new creations, famous pas de deux and highlights from the company’s wide-ranging repertoire, selected by artistic director Ted Brandsen. You'll also get a sneak preview of some of the exciting new productions coming up this season. This year's Gala is dedicated to former artistic director Rudi van Dantzig, who is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the world premiere of his version of Swan Lake on the stage of the Dutch National Ballet. As a tribute to Van Dantzig, two excerpts from this production will be performed.

After the performance, join the dancers and choreographers for a festive celebration in the foyer.
