Dutch National Ballet presents
Experience ballet in a totally new way
Dutch National Ballet presents Night Fall, the first Virtual Reality ballet in the world.
Enter a fascinating world where the boundary between dream and reality seems to vanish. Through Virtual Reality, you become totally immersed in the story. Night Fall is inspired by the famous ‘white acts’ from Swan Lake and La Bayadère.
An enchanting experience for ballet-lovers – but also for people who never go to ballet performances.
How does it work?
You can watch the VR film on your smartphone. But for the best experience, we recommend using Samsung Gear VR or a smartphone in combination with a Cardboard. This will allow you to truly enter a different world.
NB! First read the instructions above, which explain how to watch this film.

Choreographer Peter Leung created this unique experience for Dutch National Ballet. The choreography is inspired by the famous ‘white acts’ from Swan Lake, La Bayadère and Les Sylphides, which are regarded as the purest form of ballet, with a unique and magical atmosphere.
The music was especially composed for the film by Robin Rimbaud (Scanner) and is performed by violinist Pieter van Loenen.
