Impressive cast

The performance typically features members of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Chamber Choir, as well as locals from the neighbourhood and students of the Dutch National Opera Academy. Typically this annual event attracts up to 3,000 spectators but if the weather takes a turn for the worse, it will be staged indoors in the nearby Hofkerk (entry remains free but capacity is limited to 800).
