“The Carnegie Hall of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have seen some concerts here - one of the highlights was Madre Deus and Fela!. Because of the superb ambience and acoustics of the place, many live videos have been shot here. One case in point - a concert of Buena Vista Social Club.

I had the great fortune to perform there in September last year, along with 1,000 voices. It was totally a capella and the acoustics were so great that it was a treat.

The place has been fully refurbished for its 125th anniversary in December 2013. So it looks and sounds amazing.

“Most beautiful theatre in Holland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is the most prestious and beautiful theatre in Holland right on the edge of the canals. The performances range from classic theatre and music to circus. Pick your favourite and have a great night out. Pre-performance dinners can be had in the theatre itself if you book well beforehand - otherwise next door restaurants make sure you are fed and on time for the curtain.

“A circus theather ??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Officially opened as a circus theather but when i was there, I dont see any hint of it being one before. If it was a circus theater before, then it must have been the most beautiful circus theater in the world.
This theater deserves all the great review here in tripadvisor. A must see in Amsterdam if you love theater. I have visited this theater at least 10x and every time, I am still amazed buy the chadeliers and just the atmosphere.
During the breaks, you also have a great view of the River Amstel while having your champange or any beverage for that matter.
The only thing not so nice was the smoke on the balcony from the cigarette smokers. They should not allow smoking there as well. We all have the right to enjoy the view from the balcony indeed.
