Carré Theatre

Carré Theatre

Royal Carré Theatre is a theater in Amsterdam which is located on the Amstel. It was originally called Circus Carré and is built in the classicist style. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular and well-known theaters in the Netherlands. Royal Theatre Carré features a wide range of different shows. The repertoire is diverse, from operas to sitcoms, from ballet to musicals, from children’s plays to the greatest theater festivals. Royal theaters rarely can boast such a wide range of genres: the “royal”status in the country with a monarchy is very serious. And originally the theater was built as a circus. Do not be surprised, in that time it was just the usual. A director of the circus built it in 1887 for his own company, but then, in addition to the circus, they begin to show operetta and cabaret, since they have become more popular – so the circus become a theater.

Theater Carré specializes in the tour performances, but it has its own troupe and a very good orchestra. Their performances are also diverse – there are modern pieces, there are classical ones, there are operas. Touring performances usually predominate.

Here you can see classic performances. Usually they are large, complex performances with magnificent  design. There are concerts – opera, jazz or soul. Famous celebrities of classical music or jazz often perform here. Pop concerts are present too, but there are not so many of them. Also, there are many youth competitions and programs for children.

Another interesting point are the festivals. For example, Flamenco Biennial, an international festival of experimental theater or European guitarists competition  – you can find any festival depending on your preferences.

You should pay attention to the program of this theater if you want to see something good and qualitative enough, but not too serious. Here you can choose a cultural program for elderly parents or find the show on which you can come with your children.
