Hans van Manen - Live

Dutch National Ballet

Live is one of Hans van Manen's most legendary ballets. He created the work in 1979 and since then the choreography for one female dancer, one male dancer and a cameraman has touched tens of thousands of people. An iconic ballet that, through the use of live video footage, seems to reflect on current times. This special can only be seen five times.

OFFSPRING

Dutch National Opera

New makers and artists, grown from our Opera Forward Festival, are invited to reflect on our time and opera in their own unique performances. Starting from the operas that cannot be performed on our stage as planned, the creatives enter into a dialogue not only with opera, but also with the city of Amsterdam and its diverse population. An experiment that gives us a glimpse of the future of opera.

Please note

Tickets for Le nozze di Figaro, Aida, Nutcracker & Mouse King and Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins go on sale at a later time.
