Dutch National Opera & Ballet, livestream, online
To celebrate spring, the National Ballet presents a cheerful and festive "Spring Special" on Easter Monday. An intimate and exceptionally versatile duet program in which the emphasis is on both the virtuosity and the own personality of the principals and soloists of the company.
The Spring Special opens with the lively Pas de quatre from the utterly romantic nineteenth-century Giselle. From the same ballet you can see the moving pas de deux from the second act. Also on the program is the wedding duet of Princess Aurora and Prince Florimund, from the third act of The Sleeping Beauty, to the enchanting music of Tchaikovsky.
