Special fifth edition
The International Young Patrons Gala is a celebration of the talent programmes supported by the Young Patrons Circle, and this year’s special anniversary edition is a particularly significant event. With five years of the Dutch National Opera Studio and ten years of the Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet to reflect on, the gala promises to be an extra special celebration. The surprise programme for the evening will bring together not just opera and ballet performances, but also various alumni of the talent programmes, global stars, and young artists singers and dancers just starting their careers.
