Why they support Dutch National Opera & Ballet

"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."

- Anneke Groen

"It gives us a sense of solidarity: With the dancers, the staff, the entire company. How fantastic it is to see how Dutch National Ballet is able to be visible on-line nowadays as well. Knowing that this is possible thanks to gifts and donations like ours."

- Christiaan Roselaar & Nelleke Boosman

"Visiting performances of Dutch National Ballet is always a pleasure. I enjoy the diversity from classical to contemporary ballets. And I have great respect for the artistic courage to take new creative paths, in which high quality is always leading. That's why I've been a (Golden) Friend for 30 years."

- Anneke van Heertum
