More about Amare

Tijdens het driedaagse Open Festival op 19, 20 en 21 november 2021 is Amare klaar om jou te ontmoeten! Samen met o.a. het Residentie Orkest, Nederlands Dans Theater en het Koninklijk Conservatorium zetten we een spetterend openingsprogramma neer.

Afgelopen week stond het Februari Festival in het teken van Camille Saint-Saëns, met 12 concerten verspreid over vijf dagen in de Nieuwe Kerk. Bekijk hier de foto's!

Video: the interior design of Amare

Amare will be so much more than four large halls: the spaces in between will also have their own look and feel. We owe this to a passionate team of architects and interior designers. Watch and discover how they envision Amare.

Inzoomen op het veelbewogen leven van Camille Saint-Saëns

De vierde editie van het Februari Festival staat voor de deur! Met deze keer een hoofdrol voor de Franse componist Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921). Corné Ran, programmeur klassieke muziek, praat je bij over deze markante componist en zijn muziek.

Februari Festival 2021 gaat door!

Van 30 juni t/m 4 juli viert het Februari Festival alsnog de vierde editie, met een hoofdrol voor de Franse componist Camille Saint-Saëns. Nederlandse musici van wereldklasse delen samen het podium met aanstormend talent en internationale ensembles in de Nieuwe Kerk.

Bespreekbureau in Nieuwe Kerk

Vanaf  15 juni is het Bespreekbureau voor Amare en de Nieuwe Kerk in de Nieuwe Kerk, Spui 175, tegenover Amare gevestigd. 

Looking ahead to the 2021-2022 programme

In the coming season we will be transporting our solid roots in music and dance from the Zuiderstrandtheater back to the city. In addition, at Amare we will embrace opera, music theatre, entertainment shows, cabaret and circus.

Amare Podcast: inclusivity means...

Amare aspires to be a platform of, for and by the city of The Hague. But how do you achieve this, as a theatre? And how do you define the concept of ‘inclusivity’? In this podcast series, experts will discuss these themes, with Paula Udondek as host. The podcast is in Dutch.

Jan Zoet: ‘An unexpected and overwhelming farewell’

On 14 May, more than 600 visitors had an unforgettable evening during one of the so-called Fieldlabs as the Residentie Orkest performed in the Zuiderstrandtheater. As Director Jan Zoet says, ‘The long and heart-warming applause told many stories.’

On the building site: the last update...

This month, Bouwcombinatie Cadanz shares its last update about what happens at the building site of Amare on Spuiplein.

Sneak peeks

Every now and then, we get to take a peek inside the beautiful building on Spuiplein. It would be a shame not to share the pictures!

Looking ahead with Geesje Prins, head of programming

What can we expect to see on Amare’s stages after it opens? Head of programming Geesje Prins and her colleagues are already working hard to prepare the programme from September 2021 on.

A chat with director Jan Zoet

In September 2021, Amare will open its doors: a new cultural centre on Spui in The Hague. With four grand halls and a surface area of seven and a half football fields, it promises to be the ultimate place to experience theatre, dance, concerts and other outstanding performing arts. 

What's in a name

Why the name ‘Amare’ for an OCC – an Onderwijs en Cultuurcentrum, or Centre for Education and Culture – built in the centre of The Hague? In fact, choosing a name for such a multifaceted centre was a long and complicated process.

Amare through the eyes of Thomas Offermans

It’s been more than five years since architect Thomas Offermans sat down at the table with NOAHH, on behalf of Jo Coenen Architects & Urbanists, to bring Amare into being. “Now, we finally get to see everything we thought about back then.”

Your business event in Amare

With 4 halls with unique atmospheres and characters, 8 lobbies, 2 restaurants and a conference centre, The Hague will soon have a convention and event centre with national and international allure.  

Exploring the corporate options with Diederick van Eeden

With four large halls and facilities, Amare will be a world class centre for events, corporate meetings and conventions. We looked up Diederick van Eeden, manager of business events, to hear about the many options that Amare will offer.

Visual brand identity

In collaboration with our colleagues at Zuiderstrandtheater, Residentie Orkest, the Royal Conservatoire and Nederlands Dans Theater, strategic design agency Silo has drafted a brand book outlining the vision, mission and core values of the Amare brand and giving form to our visual identity.


The municipal council’s decision in 2015 to opt for sustainable new build instead of renovating the old Dr. Anton Philipszaal and the Lucent Danstheater, has had some remarkable requirements – one of them being that the first sustainably built arts complex in the Netherlands will be located in The Hague. 

Amare: the facts

In the summer of 2021, Zuiderstrandtheater, Residentie Orkest The Hague, Nederlands Dans Theater and the Royal Conservatoire will move to the heart of the city. The first programs are expected to take place in September. Amare will be a place for encounters, reflections and new discoveries.
