Virtual reality technology has permeated the world of entertainment from video games to live music experiences, but 'Night Fall' ventures into completely new territory.

Night Fall is being called "the world's first 360 degree VR ballet," and the Dutch National Ballet is sharing it with the world on YouTube, available in both 2D and 3D versions so that the content is accessible to those with and without virtual reality-viewing headsets. The immersive dance performance pulls viewers into a beautiful story that takes inspiration from the famous "white acts" from Swan Lake and La Bayadère.

The technological aspects of this virtual reality ballet experience have the ability to capture the attention of people, particularly young audiences, who might otherwise not be interested going to see a ballet performance on the stage.
