The First 360-Degree Video Ballet Performance

In virtual reality experiences, the viewer becomes totally immersed in the story. In this 360-degree video, the Dutch National Ballet in co-production with Samhoud Media and Chester Music, presents “Night Fall”, the first virtual reality ballet experience ever! Night Fall is inspired by the famous acts from Swan Lake and La Bayadère.


The amazing spatial music was composed by Robbin Rimbaud especially made for this VR film, and was performed by violinist Pieter van Loenen.



This 360-degree VR video is an extraordinary experience for those people who never get to experience ballet performances, and of course another lovely experience for ballet-lovers as well.
