In short

One of our operas or ballets takes center stage during each Foyer evening. In the foyer of Dutch National Opera & Ballet you can watch and listen to live performances and learn more about the history and current eloquence of the performance.

A few weeks before the premiere, while the creative process is still in full swing, we invite makers, singers, dancers or other experts to share their love for the performance. Sometimes one speaker is your guide, other times several people speak; there is always live music or dance to enjoy. A wonderful way to experience opera and ballet up close.


The doors and the bar open at 20.00. The evening begins at 20.30 and lasts around an hour and a quarter without a break.
