Enjoy amazing performances in Leiden

Do you live in Leiden? Have you never visited the Leidse Schouwburg or the Stadsgehoorzaal? Then you are missing out! Showcasing a multitude of performances, performers and genres, our buildings are part of the extensive history of Leiden. The Leidse Schouwburg was built in 1705, making it the oldest theatre in The Netherlands. Combined with the Stadsgehoorzaal these monumental buildings carry more than 500 years of history.

Within our programme there are several performances labelled with the tag ‘language no problem’*. These performances contain few to no spoken words and/or the spoken language is English. Here you will find an overview of all the language no problem performances.

So if you are looking for a fun night out, visit one of our performances!

* During concerts the artist may speak dutch between the songs, but most of the performance will be easy to follow for non-dutch speakers.
