Dance performances, opera days, pop music, theatre, festivals, and poetry: it's all in the Rotterdam Schouwburg. Every year no less than 500 performances take place here. And even if there is nothing to do, go inside and grab a cup of tea at cafe Floor that is now also part of the Schouwburg.
High quality performances
Most theatre and dance performances that take place here are of Dutch origin. Often the shows contain well-established names, so the quality is high. The acoustics in the main hall, where most major shows take place, are fantastic. Nobody has to miss the performances, as the floor is build up by multiple levels, so everyone can see something. Perfect for small people like myself.
During festivals, like the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) in January, the foyer of the theatre is the place to be. The space transforms suddenly into a stunning nightclub where you bump against interesting people like artists, directors and famous party people. If there is no party going on here, the huge video wall in the lobby is the real eye-catcher. Besides videos also tweets from visitors appear on this screen. So be careful with your tweets!
