An evening celebrating opera and ballet
The International Young Patrons Gala is the only evening of the year where opera and ballet share the same stage. The evening starts with an impressive red carpet, followed by a program with unique and varied opera and ballet performances, by the very best dancers and singers of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. Afterwards, the party continues in the foyer of our theatre with DJs and delicious drinks & bites. All this is included in your ticket. Finally, there will be an exclusive afterparty at an external location (guest list only; all Patrons + 1 are invited).

Program
Preparations for 2020 are now in full swing. The program will be announced here and on our social media pages in anticipation of June 5th. Like every year, the gala is a special evening dedicated to young talent that highlights and brings together our two art forms.

The International Young Patrons Gala Weekend
For our guests travelling from abroad and internationals living in Amsterdam we curate a special program from Friday, June 5th until Sunday, June 7th. Enjoy the gala and visit other Amsterdam highlights in one weekend!

The program of the International Young Patrons Gala Weekend will be announced in early 2020. Interested? Contact us at ypc@operaballet.nl.
