Amare: the facts
In August and September 2021, Zuiderstrandtheater, Residentie Orkest and Nederlands Dans Theater will move to the heart of the city. The Royal Conservatoire will follow in the beginning of 2022. Amare will be a place for encounters, reflections and new discoveries.
Amare opened its doors from September 4 for the first guided tours, performances and concerts. Simultaneously, the team is working hard to complete the furnishing of foyers, restaurants and changing rooms. From 19 to 21 November, the official opening of Amare will take place during the Open Festival, a festive programme in collaboration with the residents of Amare and various partners in the city.
