Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra
The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, founded in 1918, is known for the intensity of its concerts and its colourful sound. Under the direction of conductor Lahav Shani, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra is known for its colourful sound. Lahav Shani’s predecessors Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Valery Gergiev are both honorary conductors of the orchestra. Recent DNO productions for the orchestra were the European premiere of John Adams’ Girls of the Golden West in 2019 and Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins in 2021. This season they will join us in the pit for the revival of Ivo van Hove’s sensual one-act opera Salome.
Almost every performance at Dutch National Opera & Ballet is preceded by an introduction, with background information that can deepen your theater visit. The introductions are in Dutch and admission is free by showing a valid ticket.
