Dutch National Opera & Ballet is a proscenium theatre that can also be converted to an amphitheatre with raised orchestra pit and arena. There are two balconies. Owing to their semi-circular shape, the distance from the balcony seats to the stage is comparatively short.
The theatre is used by different companies at the same time. This means that on any one day a production may be built, lit or rehearsed onstage and another production performed in the evening.
Dutch National Opera & Ballet is provided with a modern and largely automated lighting installation.
Audio, video and communication
Dutch National Opera & Ballet has a sophisticated sound system for both auditorium and stage. The theatre is also equipped for large-screen video projection and various recordings can be made.
