A festive evening full of opera and ballet
The International Young Patrons Gala is the only evening of the year where opera and ballet share the same stage. The evening starts with a red carpet, followed by a programme with unique and varied opera and ballet performances by the best dancers and singers. The party continues in the foyer of National Opera & Ballet with DJs and the most delicious drinks & bites. After this there will be a very exclusive afterparty at an external location (only guest list; all Patrons + 1 are invited).

The preparations are now in full swing. The programme will be announced here shortly. The gala is a special evening dedicated to young talent that highlights and brings together our two art forms. What makes this year's gala special is that it will be directed by a young, artistic duo: Peter Leung, young creative associate with the Dutch National Ballet, and Lisenka Heijboer, young and talented opera director.
