  • Het Muziek Theater 3 Amstel Amsterdam, NH, 1011 PN Netherlands (map)

Overture, created by David Dawson in 2013 for Dutch National Ballet, was nominated for the ‘Zwaan’ award for Most Impressive Dance Production. The dazzling ballet lets eighteen dancers excel in graceful, powerful and virtuoso dancing. However, it also has a vulnerable side to it. Just as in T.S. Eliot’s poem The Four Quartets – Dawson’s source of inspiration – it zooms in on emotions of suffering and love.
