Cool Britannia (Netherlands Opera Ballet)

John Otto’s iconic design creates an impeccably simple setting. A sweep of moulded grey encircles the dancers, catching the light on the upper luminous edge and framing a void of infinite depth and darkness. It displays the dancers, dressed by Yumiko Takeshima in sculptured grey/blue leotards and tights, to perfection.
