Dutch National Ballet presents Night Fall, the first Virtual Reality ballet in the world
Enter a fascinating world where the boundary between dreams and reality seems to vanish. Through Virtual Reality Ballet, you become totally immersed in the story. Night Fall is inspired by the famous ‘white acts’ from Swan Lake and La Bayadère.
The music was especially composed for the film by Robin Rimbaud (Scanner) and is performed by violinist Pieter van Loenen.
An enchanting experience for ballet-lovers – but also for people who never go to ballet performances.
