“Allways perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The great performers (National Ballet, Dutch Opera house etc.) for ballet and opera are allways here and a visit to the Stopera (the other name for the Musictheater) is allways value for money. Try to make a reservation in time, so that you have a good place in the theatre. This theatre is almost any time sold out.

“Affordable opera and ballet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Going to the opera and ballet is not the realm of the elite in Amsterdam. Tickets are cheaper than many rock concerts. Not as cheap as eastern parts of europe but still great. I went to the ballet and found men not in tie. This was great.

“Excellent Dance Company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My wife and I attended two performances of this company in our visit this September. The performance hall is conveniently located in the middle of the city. The seats were comfortable and the sight lines excellent. The quite varied pieces we saw over two nights were performed with the highest level of perfection. The live orchestra was excellent. If you like ballet you will enjoy seeing this company during a visit to Amsterdam.

“Architecturally debateable outside, the venue is superb inside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I love that Amsterdam is so serious about its cmmitment to the arts that City Hall is in the same building as the National Opera & National Ballet! Love or hate the exterior of the red brick and white(ish) marble it is a wonderful place to spend the evening if you are lucky enough to get tickets.
