–Het Ballet Orkest, Made in Amsterdam 1 and 2
Made in Amsterdam consists of recent works choreographed especially for the company, supplemented by no fewer than three world premieres. The two programmes will be danced alternately.
Made in Amsterdam 1 comprises highlights by Hans van Manen and Ton Simons. Frank Bridge Variations is now danced by companies all over the world and Romance was awarded a ‘Zwaan’ for the Most Impressive Dance Production. There are also two new creations in Made in Amsterdam 1, by Juanjo Arques and Ernst Meisner, two young makers who have conclusively proved their talent in recent years. They both developed as choreographers during their dancing career.
In Made in Amsterdam 2, Dutch National Ballet is presenting works made especially for the company by Alexei Ratmansky, Christopher Wheeldon and Krzysztof Pastor – choreographers who are internationally regarded as among the most sought-after and successful ballet makers today. The programme also comprises a very special world premiere, inspired by the well-known fairytale Le Petit Prince. This will be created by associate artist David Dawson who, like the other three choreographers on the programme, is continually giving important new impulses to classical ballet.
Made in Amsterdam 1: World premiere Juanjo Arques « Homo Ludens »
Music: Dalbavie flute Concerto , flute: Sarah Ouakrat

Recently, his ballet Minos was nominated for two Golden Masks, the most prestigious theatre award in Russia. He will be creating a new work for Made in Amsterdam.
