Harmony and symmetry are the necessary ingredients for beauty. In Symmetries, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble searches for the ultimate beauty, where passion and precision come together. On stage, a spectacular and imaginative meeting between dance, music, and images is engendered as dancers from a variety of disciplines inspire one another to ever-greater heights.

One of America’s greatest living composers, John Adams, wrote the piece Fearful Symmetries, which has been arranged especially for the full ensemble. This dynamic and rousing piece offers a regularity alongside exhilarating riffs and colourful big band fragments. Symmetries is a performance that carries you along to a world of terrifying beauty.
