The International Young Patrons Gala (IYPG) has recently joined forces with Numéro Netherlands – a progressive platform that is growing rapidly. NUMÉRO NETHERLANDS is the publisher of a one-of-a-kind biennial publication that brings together the fashion, art and design world by collaborating with leading international photographers, top models, renowned stylists and talented young creatives. Floris Kortie, who presented NO&B’s 2022-23 season, will be presenting the gala on 4 June. It promises to be a spectacular programme that includes a performance by ARIA winner Elenora Hu.

The International Young Patrons Gala is almost sold out.

International Young Patrons Gala
The International Young Patrons Gala (IYPG) is the cultural event of the year for young people. This year, after three very successful previous editions that sold out completely, IYPG will return for a fourth time! The evening brings young people together to celebrate Dutch National Opera & Ballet’s various art forms. This year’s theme ‘Dear Future’ is a love letter to the future, offering a fresh perspective on what lies ahead as well as an impressive selection of reinterpreted classics. It will also showcase young and up-and-coming talent as both Dutch National Opera Studio and Dutch National Ballet’s Junior Company will be performing a ‘’Surprise Programme’ on stage. Guests will start the evening by walking the red carpet in the foyer, they will then be given a full backstage experience and close the evening with a smashing after party. Watch the 2019 aftermovie here.

Young Patrons Circle
The Young Patrons Circle consists of an international young group of people who donate to Dutch National Opera & Ballet. It currently comprises approximately 200 young professionals and creatives up to the age of 40, who share a passion for opera and ballet. It gives members an exclusive, behind-the-scenes glimpse into Dutch National Opera & Ballet – allowing them to experience the magic first-hand. The Young Patrons Circle specifically supports talent development, which is why their donations are used for projects aimed at young and talented artists. In this way, young professionals who do not work in the arts sector, support those that do. The Young Patrons Circle plays an important role in shaping the future of Dutch National Opera & Ballet.
