Theatres in Amsterdam

From musicals and classical operas to modern plays and experimental dance, Amsterdam's theatres never fail to deliver. A host of big and small theatres can be found around the Leidseplein cultural district – most visible are DeLaMar Theater and Stadsshouwburg Amsterdam, but at almost every turn you'll stumble across an old theatre with a story to tell. Another notable theatre district is at the Nes, just off Dam Square. This modern cultural quarter is home to the likes of De Brakke Grond and Frascati. And it doesn't stop there. As you move away from the city centre, every neighbourhood houses its own theatre platform with which to entertain young and old alike.
