Props department

On a hazy morning

Dutch National Opera & Ballet

Dutch National Opera & Ballet

At the props department, you can find the craziest things you could imagine and everything you might need for a performance: from tables, chairs and vases to flying monsters, strange birds and remote-controlled dolls. The props makers work with wood, paint and dyes, and cover things with fabric. The special effects are made here too. The props department staff try to shape the ideas and wishes of the artistic team as perfectly as possible. They usually do so by making the objects themselves, but sometimes they have to buy something at a flea market, for example, or on the internet.
