Prior knowledge?

You do not need any previous knowledge to enjoy opera or ballet. But it does help if you have read or watched something about the story or know some background of the performance.

For each show, we provide articles, video and photo material in the weeks leading up to the performance. This will give you an idea of what you will see and experience. You can find this content on our social media, on this website and in our newsletters.

Do you want to dive deeper? Then come extra early for the free introduction. There you will learn more about the context of the performance, what to look out for and what message the artists want to bring with the performance.
