Together with Jeroen Kohnstamm to Het Nationale Ballet

We went with Jeroen, a friend of Chendra’s, to the ballet in the Muziektheater. I like that theatre very much. Het Nationale Ballet is a really good company. I enjoyed the evening. Particularly an excellent electronic score by Jacob ter Veldhuis, who I’ve sometimes met at Roderik and Annelie de Man’s house.

Choreographers go on trying to work with traditional ballet vocabulary, just as we are still trying to do something with violins and cellos. That’s not an exact parallel, but….the point is you get that sometimes disconcerting combination of old and new.

Dinner at Dantzig aan de Amstel next door. Meat! Mmm!
