Luxor Theater Rotterdam
- Opening hours
New Luxor Theatre
The New Luxor Theatre, also reputed to be the most beautiful theatre in the Netherlands, is a large theatrical venue that offers long series of productions, including musicals, shows, cabaret, theatre concerts, opera and dance. The Luxor also puts on productions aimed at young people and families.
The typically theatrical red colour of the Luxor exudes a warmth that can be felt both inside and outside the building and is noticeable throughout the area. Visitors may expect to be repeatedly amazed. The New Luxor Theatre organises guided architectural tours every first Sunday of the month (if there is sufficient interest) and participants are shown areas that normally are not open to the public.
The materials and shapes of the new Luxor Theater reflect a mixture of solid nautical history and an intimate and festive theatre atmosphere. An intricate system of foyers and staircases are grouped around the main theatre. A spectacular access ramp for trucks circles around the outside of the building.
