Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam
This imposing 1894 neo-Renaissance-style red-brick building on the famed Leidseplein is home to Toneelgroep Amsterdam, the largest theater company in the Netherlands. Both classic plays and modern dramas are staged in its two major halls. The Gote Zaal (or Big Room) is the historic 900-seat horseshoe-shaped auditorium, which features ornate chandeliers, a magnificent painted ceiling, and tiered red-velvet seating. The Rabozaal is a state-of-the-art addition built in 2009; with around 500 seats, it often hosts international theater companies. While most productions at Stadsschouwburg are performed in Dutch, both halls feature English subtitles for Thursday night performances. During intermission, be sure to check out the hallways, with paintings and busts of actors who have performed here since the theater’s founding.
