Invigorating creations set to seductive music
In Four Seasons, Dutch National Ballet presents two new creations by internationally celebrated choreographers David Dawson and Christopher Wheeldon. With choreographies set to Max Richter's atmospheric adaptation of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and music by Joni Mitchell, they give a new meaning to the classical ballet technique.
With the Dutch premiere of Dawson’s The Four Seasons and the European premiere of Wheeldon’s The Two of Us, the programme of Four Seasons provides an exciting insight into the latest developments in the choreographic world.

Elegance, grace and geometry: these are the key words of Four Seasons by Dutch National Ballet (...)
It is, as always with Dawson, an ostentatious display of supreme body control, in which every muscle fibre seems to be under constant tension.
Christopher Wheeldon manages to match that atmosphere in his duet The Two of Us with a choreography that is as fragile and intimate, delicate and light as Chinese porcelain.
