FAQ Livestreams


What are live streams?

We strive to broadcast several performances of each program in the 2021-2022 season live from Amare in The Hague to dance lover’s homes all over the world via live streams on the NDT website. Some performances danced by the dancers of NDT on stage in Amare will be filmed live and then streamed. This means that you can attend the performance live at home, and watch the performance on a screen in your own living room. This is by no means a diluted theater experience. The dancers and support teams make every effort to make your visit to our online 'theatre' as special and inspiring as possible.

Tickets for the live streams cost € 15 each.
