60 years of Dutch National Ballet in digital timeline

29 June 2022

Dutch National Ballet will close this festive anniversary season with the launch of a digital time line. The timeline will bring each decade of the company’s history to life online, with archive footage and in-depth texts. 

As you scroll through, you can see how Dutch National Ballet grew from a pioneering company to one of the world’s leading ballet companies in just over sixty years. The timeline provides a detailed overview of the highlights of the past six decades, such as special tours and the arrival of prominent soloists. But also highlights from the ever-growing repertoire – the company’s extensive and varied artistic heritage. “Something we as the Netherlands can be enormously proud of,” said artistic director Ted Brandsen at the start of this season.

Dive into the rich history of Dutch National Ballet here (the time line will soon also be available in English).

The complete time line can now be found under the heading ‘Dutch National Ballet -- History’.
