Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Main stage
Children’s Chorus Festival 2024
Dutch National Opera & Ballet will host the annual Children’s Chorus Festival on Sunday 26 May 2024. Do you know the butterfly effect? The fluttering of a butterfly’s wings is said to generate a storm. So you are never too tiny to make a great difference. That is the theme of the mini-opera we will be working on at the Children’s Chorus Festival 2024! Spread your wings and sing along.
