Create with us: new programming by young talent!

Campaign is closed You can't donate anymore

How empty and quiet our theatre is without you. And it will unfortunately take some time before we can bring you regular performances again, due to the coronavirus measures. But our dancers, singers and other artists are not keeping still. They continue to move, dance, sing and create. That's why we will continue to bring Dutch National Opera & Ballet to your home remotely via our online programming. At the same time, we are also working on alternative live programming and the reopening of our theatre to small audiences.

In order to make new, special online projects and artistic programming possible, we need 50,000 euros. In these uncertain times, we want to continue to offer young talents and new artists a stage. For this, your support is indispensable.



A stage for young talent
We are now finally able to carefully reopen our doors - even though they've never been closed completely. Since the corona-outbreak, we have brought you, our dear audience, opera and ballet through our online programming. Our online ballet classes, for example, have been viewed more than 1 million times. Peter Leung created a beautiful new ballet in the empty streets of Amsterdam. The Chorus of Dutch National Opera sang a special opera 'hymn' and we streamed full opera and ballet performances. We are incredibly grateful that we have been able to stay in touch with our audience in this way.

But in order to be able to continue offering an alternative program in the coming months, we need your help. With your donation we can continue to offer young talents and creators a stage. Both for a live audience in our theatre, as well as for our growing online audience.

Keep on singing and dancing!
We hope you'll continue to sing, dance and enjoy everything that Dutch National Opera & Ballet has to offer. Online and in our beloved theatre. Do you want to help out our singers, dancers and artists? Then keep us going and join in! Make our alternative programming possible through this crowdfunding campaign. Of course you'll get something special in return. Have a look at the possibilities on the right.

Hoera! ‘Maak het mee: nieuwe programmering door jong talent!’ door Nationale Opera & Ballet is succesvol gefinancierd. Met dank aan jou!

21-07-2020 | 17:34 Hoera! Dankzij jou, en meer dan 600 andere donateurs, hebben we maar liefst €52.377 opgehaald met onze crowdfundingcampagne ‘Maak het mee: nieuwe programmering door jong talent!’. Onze dank voor jullie overweldigende support is zo groot dat we deze maar moeilijk in woorden kunnen vatten. Wat hebben we bij Nationale Opera & Ballet ontzettend veel lieve, verrassende en verrijkende reacties en steunbetuigingen mogen ontvangen. We zullen er zorg voor dragen dat jouw donatie precies terecht komt op de plek waar deze voor bedoeld is: bij de nieuwe, bijzondere (online) projecten en artistieke programmering die juist ons jonge talent en nieuwe artiesten een podium bieden.  Mede dankzij jou kunnen we in september het seizoen openen met FAUST [working title] Makers Lisenka Heijboer Castañon en Manoj Kamps hebben samen met hun creatieve team van jonge makers en muzikanten drie maanden de tijd om een nieuw muziektheaterstuk op de bühne te brengen en daarmee het seizoen 20-21 te openen. In de podcast-serie “En wat kan er wél” gaat Botte Jellema met hen in gesprek over het maken van een muziektheaterstuk in zo'n korte tijd. Beluister hier de eerste aflevering!  In augustus komen we bij je terug met de aankondiging van de rest van het nieuwe opera- en ballet seizoen en de projecten die jij mogelijk hebt gemaakt.  Wij zullen deze week contact met je opnemen over je eventuele tegenprestatie.  Nogmaals, en ook namens Stichting voordekunst, heel veel dank voor je steun en vertrouwen, Een dankbare groet van iedereen bij Nationale Opera & Ballet en hopelijk tot snel in ons theater!
