December 9: Nutcracker Rehearsal with Het Nationale Ballet

    Ivy Circle members and their partners are welcome to join Het Nationale Ballet for this very special closed event – a private rehearsal for the première of the classic holiday ballet, The Nutcracker. 

    Prior to the rehearsal, Ivy Circle guests will be invited to meet Adjunct Artistic Director Rachel Beaujean over informal drinks. Rachel is a former soloist at the Dutch National Ballet and respected ballet veteran. She will share an exclusive look at the rehearsal process and dance life ‘backstage’.

    Please join us for a special evening, planned as follows:

    18:45 – 19:20           Informal drinks with Rachel Beaujean in artists’ foyer
    19:30 – 20:00           Soloists’ rehearsal, grand pas de deux
    20:00 – 21:00           Act II rehearsal 

    This event is staged by the Ivy Circle board. Ivy Circle members can each purchase two tickets each. The price of €15 per person includes the drinks with Rachel Beaujean at the start of the evening. Click here to buy your ticket(s) via this Eventbrite page. 

    Should you want to buy more than two tickets, please send an email to By mid-November, we will let you know whether extra seats are available. 

    Please note that you need to enter through the artist entrance, rather than the main entrance. The address for the artist entrance is Waterlooplein 22. This is on the side of the building, across from the tram stop. 

    We look forward to welcoming you there on December 9!
