Introductory talk

No physical introductions will be possible until 2021, due to the measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including the 1.5 m directive. We will keep you informed about possible digital introductions or podcasts through our social media channels, our newsletter and website.

Each performance of Dutch National Opera & Ballet is preceded by an introduction. Learn more, enjoy more.

The introduction - in Dutch! - starts 45 minutes before the performance start and is held in the Odeonzaal (ground floor entrance) and is free of charge for visitors to the performance. Sound amplification is used. A few days before the premiere date, the introduction is also available digitally as a podcast. You can see if the podcast is already available on the performance page of the production in question.
