Nederlands Dans Theater is one of the world's most celebrated dance companies, wowing audiences with breathtaking dance, awe-inspiring skill and passionate creativity.

The evening opens with a triple bill from award-winning Artistic Director Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon.  Schubert, is an emotionally charged ballet danced to Schubert’s String Quintet in C – Adagio. In contrast, vibrant Mexican mambo music accompanies the iconic work Sad Case, and Some Other Time explores the emotional and visceral style of Lightfoot and Leon.

Edward Clug’s mutual comfort, tells the dancers’ individual stories with beauty and spontaneous irony. Legendary choreographer Hans van Manen’s Solo delivers an athletic tour de force set to Bach’s violin Partita.

For the finale, Alexander Ekman’s Cacti bursts onto the stage with an uplifting and joyous party spirit.
