More than 500 performances are shown each year in the Rotterdamse Schouwburg, varying from classical ballet to experimental multimedia theatre; in the large and small halls, or the Krijn Boon Studio on the forth floor.

All the major Dutch theatre, dance and opera companies can be seen in the Schouwburg. Performances from Rotterdam companies such as RO Theater, Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and Dance Works Rotterdam usually premiere here.

The Rotterdamse Schouwburg is also one of the few theatres in the Netherlands to provide a structured programme of international entertainment: prominent international companies are often invited to perform here. The Rotterdamse Schouwburg also accommodates festivals such as GDMW, the International Film Festival Rotterdam and Poetry International.
