For the occasion of the Uitmarkt 2013 on Sunday 1 September (12.00–12.30), the Dutch National Ballet is presenting the debut of the Junior Company in the main auditorium of the Stadsschouwburg.
The company’s group of youngsters are presenting a fragment from Lolapalooza, choreographed by Ernst Meisner, which will have its world premiere at the gala for the opening of the 2013-2014 season, in The Amsterdam Music Theatre, on Saturday 7 September. Meisner, the artistic coordinator of the Junior Company, is creating his new work to the music of the same name by John Adams.
The Dutch National Ballet will also be dancing pas de deux from Minos by Juanjo Arqués, and from Marius Petipa’s Don Quichotte, the production created exclusively for the Dutch National Ballet by choreographer Alexei Ratmansky that is returning to The Amsterdam Music Theatre in October.
