“Wow.. what an atmosphere”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Great show (Warhorse), good acoustic for music and you can see the stage from every seat. It is almost like you have golden seats. The service during the break was good, enough places to seat. It is a great building to see from the inside!

“We saw the circus”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

... and were disappointed to miss it the next year. An exceptional venue, parading exceptional talent. A pity the winter shows are less frequent; we would really have liked to see more.

“be aware of the acoustics”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

it is a nice building but it wasn't meant to be a concert hall (it was a circus) and therefore the acoustics are lousy ... if you know it and you don't go for the sound...it is a very enjoyable place

“Loved the circus in a building built especially for circuses”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

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.
