“Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Carre is my favorite concert venue in Amsterdam. I've seen many great shows there, once 5 in 6 days. The venue interior is done very well and the outdoor setting is very special, especially at night with all the nearby bridges on the Amstel river.

“HEMA De Musical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Sunday 21 october we went to the world famous Koninklijk Theater Carré to see the world premiere of HEMA De Musical, a musical about a (famous dutch) department store. The show was very funny and entertaining.
The location of the theater (along the Amstel canal) can't be beat, right in the centre of Amsterdam. The hall itself can't be beat either, the grandeur, the interior decoration, this really is the most important theater in The Netherlands.
Performances are national and international. The world's most famous artists have performed here the past 125 years. Check their website for details.

“Top notch Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is the Top Notch Theater for decades in the Netherlands. Every (international) artist would like to play here, because of it's excellent acoustics, vibrance and decorum. It is not a big theater, but that's not the issue, it is the ambiance and surroundings that's make it a thrill.

“Beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

It was an evening filled with laughter. It was comedy night.
What a beautiful place this is. One of the most amazing theaters I have been to. Please are dressed at their best, reception is more than great.

“Great location, tacky styling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The location is one of the best in Amsterdam and because of its iconic nature well worth a visit. However, the way they have recently styled doesn't do its deserved grandeur any justice.
