Virtual Reality (VR) is quickly affirming its presence in all aspects of human life. Now it has taken the world with surprise with the world’s first VR ballet being unravelled by the Dutch National Opera & Ballet.
Named ‘Night Fall’, the first Virtual Reality ballet in the world was premiered on the Amsterdam’s UITmarkt on Saturday 27 August 2016. It was shown for free during the weekend. Dutch National Opera & Ballet worked in collaboration with Samhoud Media and Chester Music to bring out the ballet that is especially created for Virtual Reality. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Gear VR provided the necessary technology to create the immersion experience.
The Night Fall allowed the viewers to enter a fascinating world where the boundary between dream and reality seemed to disappear. Virtual Reality made the viewer totally immersed in the story. Viewers got a sense of being present in the same space as the performers.
As stated in the Dutch National Opera’s website , “you can watch the VR film on your smartphone, but for the best experience we recommend using Virtual Reality glasses or a smartphone in combination with a Cardboard. This will allow you to truly enter a different world.”
Night Fall was inspired by the famous ‘white acts’ from Swan Lake and La Bayadère. The ballet was choreographed by Peter Leung, a former dancer with Dutch National Ballet. The music was composed by Robin Rimbaud (Scanner). It was directed by Jip Samhoud and Marijn Korver from &samhoud media.
Virtual Reality is a computer technology that uses software-generated realistic images, sounds and other sensations to replicate a real environment or an imaginary setting, and simulates the user’s physical presence in this environment to enable the user to interact with this space. Source
