Current policies

Governance Code Cultuur

Together with the Board, the Supervisory Board paid attention to compliance with the principles of the Governance Code for Culture. The Board and Supervisory Board subscribe to the importance of compliance with the code, although due to the limited size of Opera Zuid’s organisation, this sometimes takes place less formally and explicitly than in larger organisations. Below, the nine principles of the code are used to indicate how the Board and Supervisory Board comply with the code.

Responsibility and application

Management Board and Supervisory Board are aware of their responsibility regarding the application of the Code. They regularly reflect on the organisation’s performance, on the relationship with stakeholders and on their own functioning.

Governance model

Board and Supervisory Board are satisfied with the governance model i.c. the Supervisory Board model that has been functioning since 2009. As of 2017, the Board is formed by the Intendant under the supervision of the Supervisory Board. The Intendant is supported by a management team consisting of the executive producer, the controller and the business advisor.

Task and mode of operation of the board

The director’s duties and working methods are laid down in the Supervisory and Executive Board Regulations dated 16 October 2009. With the new intendant taking office, the procuration regulations were revised and new agreements were made on the content and periodicity of management information. The regulations were revised when the Intendant took office in February 2017. The flow of information between Director and Supervisory Board is adequately regulated in these regulations.

With stakeholders such as the philharmonie zuidnederland, theatre managements, festival managements, production houses and universities of applied sciences, we have increasing substantive consultation on the creation of productions. The specific cooperation with philharmonie zuidnederland (accompaniment task) is laid down in a covenant dated 21 May 2016.
