The programme

It is a festive season for Dutch National Opera, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. It will do so in grand and compelling style, as befits a company celebrating success after success over the past years, both in the Netherlands and abroad, under the passionate leadership of Pierre Audi. Not to forget a fantastic chorus, an excellent artistic team and a streamlined organisation. Dutch National Opera has grown into an internationally renowned opera house with a reputation for quality and individuality.

Dutch National Ballet has an impressive group of dancers, and in the eyes of leading journalists is one of the top five ballet companies in the world. One of the special productions in the coming season is Mata Hari, a full-length narrative ballet by artistic director and choreographer Ted Brandsen.

The programming for 2015 - 2016 includes opera and ballet productions that are characterised by the top quality and innovative approach that you are accustomed to from our organisation. We create, produce and present world-class opera and ballet. Most of our productions are created in-house and are performed by our own chorus and dancers, and the costumes, wigs, sets and props are made in our own ateliers. The fact that everything is created in-house, thus safeguarding and developing the high standard of craftsmanship, makes our institute unique and special.

Dutch National Opera & Ballet brings together the artistic, artisanal and technical qualities of both art forms, and continues to develop them.
