Tip: Christmas performances Dutch National Opera & Ballet and ballet Dawson


We prefer to celebrate the Christmas holidays together, which is why Dutch National Opera & Ballet presents a program for the whole family. View the performances here and quickly order tickets for musical holidays in the theater – with the whole family! On the program:

Het Lijflied (age 5+)
A musical journey through the body for everyone from the age of five. Suppose you could take a look inside your own body… What would you see and hear? And maybe you could understand yourself a little better if you knew what’s going on inside you? Het Lijflied is a musical journey, which can be seen in various Amsterdam theaters during the Christmas holidays.

Operetta Land (8+)
Operetta Land does not exist. It is a made-up country with made-up people having made-up adventures, bursting into song at every turn. Curious? Get a taste of the unique atmosphere of Operetta Land in the behind-the-scenes video.

The Sleeping Beauty (8+)
Gold crown jewel; around the holidays, the Dutch National Ballet brings the sparkling Sleeping Beauty to life a few again. This classic fairy tale, which continues to enchant young and old, was cast in breathtaking gold by its creators. For the children there is (while stocks last) a special free gift including the poster, facts, the story and who’s who in the ballet. Click here for dates during the Christmas holidays.
