I was lucky enough to be given tickets to Caro Emerald for a gift. I have never been in a theatre so beautiful. The sound was the best ever. Caro and her wonderful band made all my dreams come true in one night. I will return whenever she does. I could imagine this old building as a circus venue. So... More

This is a totally unique theatre and although many people fit into this setting is still gives a special sphere. The stage is almost the same height as the seats so you feel part of the show yourself. This is a place to visit at least once and remember the wonderful magic that theatre creates.

I love the ambience of the Carre - really elegant and plush. The seats are banked very steeply, so it is always possible to see over the heads of the people in front (even the tallest Dutchman!) It is a good venue for plays, musicals or concerts, although indeed the acoustics are better at the Concertgebouw. Just a short (scenic)... More

Carre was built to house a circus, not a concert hall, go to the Concertgebouw for acoustics. It’s on the Amstel river, it has ambience, and certainly part of the Amsterdam evening out scene.

Nice place to see a good show. Beware: some seats are high up (if you have fear of heights). The building is neorenaissancestyle.

Though you don't like to attend the circus or concert, but you need to see this place once. It's a good place for shows like cirsus, musical etc. The hall is beautiful. Wherever you sit, you still see the stage. I've been here a couple times and like to come again for other performances.
