At Dutch National Opera & Ballet, we think it's important that everyone can be themselves and that you can love who you want. Always and everywhere. We are therefore happy to celebrate this freedom together with the rest of the city during Pride Amsterdam.

Pride is all about being who you are and loving who you want. But what about the art forms of opera and ballet? The vast majority of the classical repertoire originates from a period in which there was no room for the variety of sexual orientations and gender identities that exists in our world.

The details of Pride Amsterdam 2022:

  • This year, Pride Amsterdam will be held from 30 July until 7 August. 
  • This edition's theme is 'My Gender, My Pride'
  • During Pride Amsterdam, over 300 activities will be organised in the city, including the Pride street parties. On Friday 5 and Saturday 6 August, for example, the Women's parties will take place on the square in front of Dutch National Opera & Ballet.
