“Wonderful theatre, and performance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

I booked this for a performance during our visit to Amsterdam, primary to see and admire the decorative theatre interior. But I must say the Hans Klok show was very entertaining and thrilling in parts.

The theatre is lovely, both the façade and the auditorium. Not knowing anything about the performer, my expectations of the show itself were medium to say the least. However it more than exceeded those. Some of the escapades and tricks were thrilling and intriguing. It was great value, being about three hours long.

“Beautiful and elegant . Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Carre has and is always been a beautiful theater. The shows Carre offers varies from concerts of famous artists to circusshows. We've enjoyed many shows here with our kids and friends. THe building has been renovated a few years back and now you can enjoy Carre in all it's glory. Lush red velvet everywhere, great sound and good lighting. There isn't really a bad seat in the house. But I do recommend to buy tickets for second row seats, because its almost as good as first row for a good price. The theater is clean, staff is very well dressed and friendly. You can park the car in the nearby parking garages or along the waterside. But it's also easy to travel with public transit. Carre is a wonderful theater for a night out or to celebrate.

“Beautiful Theatre with homey feel and superb location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The Royal Carré Theatre in Amsterdam is ideally located at the banks of the river Amstel. An easy stroll (or public transport) will get you there. We watched a musical in this theatre and we thoroughly enjoyed the homey feel that this theatre gives you. The sound and vision are very well as are the services (drinks, bathrooms). The building is beautiful inside and out. We went to 'HEMA the musical' and that really was a hoot! We will definately go to the Royal Carré Theatre again.

“The Carnegie Hall of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
