Dutch National Opera & Ballet creates, produces and presents both traditional and innovative top quality opera and ballet productions. In order to stimulate new generations of artists and to increase interest in and support for opera and ballet, ambitious projects are being developed in addition to regular performances to further develop a broad opera and ballet repertoire. Some examples of projects to which various funds and (family) foundations contribute are described here.
