This was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. We had a fantastic 6 days in the city, but this was our favourite. The music was wonderful and the dancing exquisite. I thoroughly recommend it.

I loved it, it was a great experience for Christmas day. What I loved the most from this opera house was definitely the space in between seats, I am 6'2"/190cms and had struggled for instance at the Palais Garnier. I was very comfortable this time.

Great theatre. Easily accessible. I’m a wheelchair user. Huge foyers at every level. Lifts. Inside the auditorium has great acoustics and sight lines. We were on 2nd balcony. Chose seats so could see orchestra and watch the patterns woven by corps de ballet on stage. We saw Nutcracker. 2 hours 15 mins. hours. Beautifully choreographed and beautifully danced snowflakes, drilled with military precision. It’s a huge production. Very big cast. 28 snowflakes 24 children. Larger numbers in the National dances. Interesting telling of the story. Greek national dance? A magic lantern, life in the magic lantern as tableaux. The set transformations are spectacular. Sugar plum fairy danced well. Special mention to the 90 strong orchestra, who played their hearts out. Egalitarian Amsterdam. Not enough women’s rest rooms, they just invaded the Male facilities. Would give Americans heart failure.

Two of us saw this opera the other night while visiting Amsterdam. It was spectacular and stunning. I think it will remain with me for a long time. The amazing and innovative direction and the main singers who were so so incredible. What was also spine chilling beautiful was the choir and the way they they worked together in that dressing scene. The conductor Lorenzo Viotti was stunning extracting every nuance of the music from the extraordinary orchestra. Their opening music of the Rusticana opera was stunning. It was an amazing night.
