What is an Opera Friend?

Why they support Dutch National Opera

"It touches me when the decor, music and direction form a unity, a perfect interplay. Then opera is a success and a party. How I miss that at this time! As a Friend of Dutch National Opera, I would like to be its ambassador and support it."
