On Friday 28 June 2019, the Young Patrons Circle of Dutch National Opera & Ballet hosted the third edition of the annual international Gala, a festive black-tie evening full of opera and ballet. The International Young Patrons Galais the only evening of the year where opera and ballet share the same stage.
On this unique, specially composed evening in the year, all the talents of the National Opera & Ballet (NOB) gave a sizzling performance, with previews of the new season. Famous Dutch people and faces from the fashion and culture world dressed in the most beautiful designs to witness the best of what opera and ballet has to offer.
The Wunderkammer chose the beautiful red Aleia roses to star in the floral decorations for the gala, having been inspired by one of the performances of the evening, Romeo & Julia. More than 5,000 biologically produced roses were used to create large floral eye catchers, and the VIPS had their photo taken in front of a rose garden wall.
