The Stadsschouwburg, which translated from Dutch means the Municipal Theater, can be easily spotted on the western side of Leidseplein square in Amsterdam. In fact, the theater can’t be missed, as its neo-renaissance architecture is the first thing your eye will go to. You will also know it by the large number of street performers gracing the entrance. The u-shape design of the Stadsschouwburg’s auditorium seats 1200 guests, and is modeled after an 18th-century Court Theater.

The theater has occupied its current location since 1774. It also once burned down as a result of a firework accident, but was reconstructed in the same spot. Until recently (1986), the Stadsschouwburg was the place to see all kinds of performances, including opera. But these days, most of Amsterdam’s operas are held at the newly constructed Muziektheater.

The Stadsschouwburg is also home to Toneelgroep Amsterdam, one of the most prominent theater groups in the Netherlands. The group is known for transforming classical plays, freshly revamping them to resonate with modern audiences. Every year the group invites stage managers from around the world to make their performances at the theater. If you’re in Amsterdam for a couple nights, a play at the Stadsschouwburg is a must-see!
