Introductory talk

Every performance of Dutch National Opera & Ballet is preceded by an introductory talk. Learn more, enjoy more.

The introduction - in Dutch! - begins 45 minutes before curtain and is held in the foyer of the second balcony. The introduction is free of charge to everyone attending the performance, and amplification is used to enhance audibility. Several days prior to the premiere, the introduction will be made available digitally as a podcast. Check the performance page of the production in question to see if the podcast has already been made available.
