5x Monthly performances & shows

As a lover of art, you don't want to miss out on these winter exhibitions. But what's on the program in theaters and music venues? Plenty! That's for sure. Feast your eyes and ears at these monthly performances for all ages. Enjoy!

Pannenkoekconcerten @Muziekgebouw | monthly on Sundays

Every month on Sunday, the city foyer fills up with a whole gang of happy kids from two to six years old. Why, you may ask? For the Pannenkoekconcerten (pancake concerts), of course! No show is the same: from Sesame Street actors to a live performance of nursery music program Apennoten; there's a different act during each concert. Presentor Nol Havens will also sing the well-known pancake song, but the best and tastiest part is, of course, the pancake. Come and sing along! 

Lunchbreak concert @Muziekgebouw | weekly on Thursday

Did you know you can enjoy performances during business hours? Take the lunch break concerts in the Muziekgebouw, for example. You may not get a pancake, but for about three euros, you don't have to do anything except a bit of listening. The Fontys Euphonium Quartet and Haijwich Elders are both on the agenda.

Royal Opera House @NatLab | monthly live from Covent Garden

It may not be the real deal, but it does save you a trip to our western neighbors. You can follow live opera and ballet performances at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden at Natlab. Romeo and Juliet, Rigoletto, and Swan Lake. Masterpiece upon masterpiece. Get your butt to the auditorium and enjoy! 

Pand P Podium @Pand P | several performances per month

You can, check your Discover Weekly on Spotify, but a visit to the Pand P Podium is way more fun. Here, local bands and musical acts get to conquer the hearts of the (new) audience, including yours. The best part? All performances are free. A rich experience without breaking the bank!. 

No Dutch Required @Parktheater | multiple performances per month

You can't visit just any show if you don’t speak Dutch. As the name suggests, that not mastering Dutch isn’t a problem at No Dutch Required. Ballet, comedy shows, opera. These performances at Parktheater are perfect for visitors who don't speak any Dutch. Check out the whole program here.
