During my city trips, I always try to visit the local opera theatre because of the beautiful interior and its classical elements. Amsterdam itself also houses a most decadent institute especially built for the staging of operas, ballets, and other forms of music theatre. The National Opera & Ballet always launches its new season in September with their grand Gala.
In 2016 I visited this event – be sure to book your tickets early in advance – and prepared myself for a glamourous night out. In our gala dresses we spent a lovely evening that started with Asian dinner at Woo Bros, which I am sorry to say closed their doors recently.
Upon receipt we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of the former queen Beatrix and other famous faces.The show consisted of a range of short previews of the new, upcoming performances, making me very eager for a next visit. Furthermore, around Christmas the classical shows, such as The Nutcracker and The Swan Lake are performed in this theatre, which is also really nice to visit with you family during the holiday season.
