Dutch National Opera and Dutch National Ballet are among the best opera and ballet companies in the world. Something the Netherlands can be proud of. A large part of the international success of Dutch National Opera & Ballet is provided by our own singers and dancers: the Choir of Dutch National Opera and the dancers of Dutch National Ballet. Night after night they deliver top performances on the stage of our theatre.

Why we need more donors

Dutch National Opera & Ballet is more than just a theatre. Almost everything that can be seen on stage is made in-house in our own workshops. We also organize talent programs for young singers and dancers, and education and participation projects. Dutch National Opera & Ballet is there for everyone, from amateur to world star, from layman to connoisseur, for now, and for generations to come. For a lifetime. Our donors help to make this possible.
