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.

The festival in a nutshell

Children’s choruses from throughout the country can sign up for this day. Various workshops, such as acting and movement, are also offered during the festival. The day provides a special introduction to the art form of opera as well as a unique behind-the-scenes view. During the grand finale, the children’s choruses perform on stage along with a song developed and performed, particularly for this event. Parents and other people interested are invited to attend this festive finale.

Singing together

Every week, numerous children’s choruses in the Netherlands experience the joy of singing together. Dutch National Opera would want to provide them with the opportunity to learn about all of the possibilities available at the Netherlands’ largest opera house. Discover what it’s like to sing and play with other children’s choruses on the stage of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. The very first edition of the Children’s Chorus Festival took place in 2015, and since then, about 300 children from throughout the country participated in this memorable day every year.

The registration for the Children’s Chorus Festival 2024 is closed.
