The Nationale Opera & Ballet becomes first Dutch arts venue to offer app & online pre-ordering
The Nationale Opera & Ballet, home to the Dutch National Opera, Dutch National Ballet and Holland Symfonia, joins such world-class opera venues as Royal Opera House and London Coliseum in offering its patrons the opportunity to pre-order their food & drink via app and online.
Thanks to the Preoday platform, patrons of the 1,594 seat opera house need not worry any more if they have enough time to grab their interval food and drink. Now they simply need to download the Nationale Opera & Ballet app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, choose which event they’re attending, where they’re sitting and what they would like to order – then pay, all in a matter of seconds. This means they can instead spend their time enjoying the world-class performances held at the Stopera. Additionally, customers are able to pay with iDeal.
Bas Schotsmann, Head of Catering and Public Assistance says, “We have always been proud to offer the latest innovations to our patrons and so we were very keen to introduce what Preoday did at the Royal Opera House in London to the Nationale Opera & Ballet in Amsterdam. Preoday’s platform has been very flexible in accommodating the market in the Netherlands such as by translating into Dutch and accepting iDeal payments. We are already looking forward to extending our offering even further such as by expanding the menu with additional food offerings and enabling more bars to accept app orders.”
