The Rabotheater was designed by architect Jan Hoogstad. In 2009, an exhibition of Arent Weevers took place at the theater and in 2000 the comedian Wilfried Finkers worked in the Rabotheater as head of technical services. The opening was on April 21, 2001 with Creon, an opera by Huub Kerstens by the National Touring Opera. The building is designed on the basis of mathematical cylindrical and rectangular forms. In Rabotheater there is year-round wide variety of performances.

In addition, the building is often used for commercial activities such as conferences, product presentations and staff meetings. The halls and foyers can be divided very flexibly.
