With a scenic location on the Amstel River, the Royal Theater Carré is also not far from Amsterdam’s City Hall.  When it opened in 1887, it was a circus theater, and the brainchild of circus master Oscar Carré.  Today the theater hosts many diverse performances, including Broadway productions such as Fela!, which was part of the recent Holland Festival of 2011.

The theater has a main stage and a smaller auditorium that is only accessible through a stage door. The auditorium also only seats about 100 people and is used for more private, intimate performances.  The Royal Theater Carré is often referred to as the “Off-Off Broadway on the unknown canal.” It is also home to a wide range of operas, plays, musicals, and other shows.  Many of the performances are delivered in Dutch, but there are also many international shows that can be understood and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

Although it is not primarily a circus theater anymore, the venue still holds a large annual circus performance with acts from all around the world. Every year, contemporary circus master Fredy Knie, of Switzerland’s Circus Knie, ensures that all of the acts work together to become the acclaimed World Christmas Circus.
