"Extending the stage by moving the side curtains and the backcloth, Anna Tsygankova appeared in the centre. Slowly all the other dancers joined her coming from between the stage lightings filling the whole stage with social distance. A sublime grand finale with the whole ensemble of the National Ballet and the Junior Company."
It must have been a wonderful moment.
Happily, I have just found a video of that scene and it seems to have been every bit as impressive as the scene that Yvonne described. Listen to that applause. It's deafening. Yet the auditorium was only a quarter full. It represents the affection in which Amsterdam - indeed the whole world - holds that magnificent company.
