Schubert (2014) premiered during the anniversary performance 25 Years León & Lightfoot. This pas de deux, danced on a piece of music by Schubert is, besides being an emotional ballet exuding a love story between a man and a woman, a highly technical work that emphasizes NDT2’s extraordinary talent level.

 

« …They were both fragile and a bit broken, as the tin soldier and the dancer in Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale. » (Theaterkrant, 2014)
