Surrounded by the construction of docklands-turned-neighbourhood Houthavens, this gleaming theatre has a glass facade providing views over the IJ. Its 15,000-sq-metre auditorium means it can accommodate huge sets for large-scale theatre and music productions. A cutting-edge system translates the on-stage works into eight languages. If you're arriving by boat, you can pull up at its dock.
All-organic food and natural wines are served at its restaurant.
