The Young Patrons Circle of Dutch National Opera & Ballet seeks to unite young professionals, philanthropists and art enthusiasts between 25 and 40 years of age who share a love of opera and ballet. The Young Patrons Circle will take you into the world of opera and ballet, open doors that are normally closed and introduce you to opera houses and their young patrons from all over the world. The Young Patrons Circle is a great plat­form for young professionals to enter the world of philanthropy while gaining valuable connections for the future.


The Young Patrons Circle will use the inter­national stature of Dutch National Opera & Ballet to its advantage and establish inter­national partnerships with the most pres­tigious opera and ballet houses in the world. Our young patrons have the chance to gain access to a valuable international network, meet fellow opera and ballet lov­ers all over the world and get an exclusive glimpse of their opera houses and ballet companies. Finally, our young patrons and the young patrons from our international partners will receive an invitation to our annual international gala in Dutch National Opera & Ballet.


You will be invited to an exciting series of opera and ballet evenings, both during pre­mieres and behind the scenes, designed exclusively for the Young Patrons Circle. This includes an annual gala with our opera singers, directors, dancers, choreogra­phers and international partners, and the International Council. Single members are welcome to bring a guest to all events, from parties and performances to discussions with top singers, conductors, dancers, choreographers and the artistic staff of Dutch National Opera & Ballet.

We will invite you to be directly involved with our institution and to share your ideas about artistic and commercial develop­ments with other young patrons and the company’s managing directors. In this way, we hope to make your experience of Dutch National Opera & Ballet even more unique. This is the perfect chance to play a leading role in continuing to present wonderful operas and ballets of the highest quality.

“Connect with the arts, philanthropy and each other”
