Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Foyer
From € 10 (incl. Heri Heri meal)
This year, Dutch National Opera and RIGHTABOUTNOW INC. will be joining forces once again to celebrate and commemorate Keti Koti – ‘breaking the chains’ – in a musical-theatrical way. Together, we have created a colourful programme that looks back on our colonial past, and gives us an opportunity to continue working with many of our partners, while simultaneously seeking out new collaborations.
