This is a gem of a theater on the Amstel River. We saw many great shows here : ballet, theater, circus. In 2004 the theater was renovated for 28 million euro's. Since then leg space has improved considerably and from all seats one has good views. Recently we saw War Horse here, a great show. During intermissions one can stroll along the Amstel, and enjoy the view of the Skinny Bridge.

We were fortunate to buy tickets at the last minute for the final showing of Amsterdam's Winter Circus. This was the 29th year of the circus. We are so glad that we did not miss this amazing show. With approximately 12 acts and an intermission, the 3 hours flew by, leaving us wanting more. Though we were in the second to last row, due to the late purchase of the tickets, our view was amazing. We would most definitely see the Winter Circus again or any other production for that matter in the Carre Theater. The interior is beautiful and the view is amazing from any seat in the house. Check out their schedule before leaving home and book tickets for a production while you are in Amsterdam.

Went here last night to watch the second Glen Hansard gig in Amsterdam.

We arrived from central on the Metro which took us to one street away from the venue. The walk along the canal really set the tone for the evening. The front of the venue was awesome and after having our electronic tickets scanned we were given instructions on where to go.

As the warm-up act was performing we were unable to enter the theatre so we went up to the bar. The classy set up with doors to the balcony which allows you to look over the canal whilst enjoying a drink and atmosphere.

Upon entry into the actual theatre, we were told where our seats were and headed towards them. What struck me the most was how beautiful the inside of the venue was. A decent size, with a touch of class but extremely intimate.

Glen had a 9 piece band with him and the show was out o this world He was able to perform without a microphone for two songs and the sound travelled with ease.

- Fantastic venue
- Great friendly and helpful staff
- Amazing Gig

Went to see show in this beautiful Theatre. Human acts ok, they have a choice of what to do. Animal acts awful, so so cruel. If I had known there were animals performing I would not have gone. I cried and was on the verge of walking out. Could not believe the Dutch people accept this form of entertainment.

We were given tickets by my son for a show in the Carre, it was my first time in this theater, its a great old building inside and out. On the outside there is a balcony were you can stand whilst drinking a cold or warm drink from the theaters bar. Inside there is access to all levels of the theater which is two floors . We were on the top level but had a great view of the stage. There are very clean and bright rest rooms/bathroom and places to sit. There is a clock room which you have to pay for and a bar/cafe serving drinks and small snacks like crisps and nuts. there are people to show you to your seat and also help if need be.

Went there for a seated rock concert. The place is really beautiful. Enough spots to have drinks and comfortable seats.

Theatre Carre was built to house circuses, and we were thrilled by the Wereld Kerst Circus (World Christmas Circus) that featured acts from acrooss the world - an brilliant American clown (Belo), breath-taking trapeze artists from North Korea, an amzing Italian ventriloquist and other acts from Russia, Vietnam, Italy and China.

This review, however, is about the venue.

Koninklijk Theater Carre is a stunningly gorgeous building on the banks of the River Amstel in eastern Amsterdam. It provides steeply tiered seating overlooking a 'theatre in the round'. Seats are very comfortable (although leg room is bit cramped). Access to the theatre and the ability to exit quickly is outstanding. Seats are on four levels and there are both stairs and lifts. Reastaurants and bars operate on most levels and there are enough cloak rooms to deal with demand quickly and efficiently.

Above all, this is a beautiful building that achieves its purpose efficiently.

Went here to see Katie Melua perform and we were not disappointed. Also the venue was wonderful with the seating giving a perfect view of the stage, reminded me of a mini Royal Albert Hall in London.
