Stadsschouwburg

Theatre in Southern Canal Ring

When this theatre with the grand balcony arcade was completed in 1894, public criticism of the design was so fierce that the exterior decorations were never completed; architect Jan Springer was so upset, he retired. The horseshoe auditorium seats 1200 spectators and is used for large-scale plays, operettas and festivals. Don't miss the chandeliered splendour of its Stanislavski theatre café.
