Starter and Instrument Garden are back!
Season 22/23 will again feature Starters prior to the Symphonic Friday and Sunday matinee. The Starter is a lively preliminary program filled with live performances by our own musicians and interviews with soloists and conductors. After the Family Concerts, you can once again honk, ping and drum along with the musicians of the orchestra in the Instrument Garden.
The Instrument Garden is open until an hour after the concert. The Starter begins 45 minutes before the concert begins. Both are free to attend and take place in Foyer 2 (Tango).
Always wondered what a top orchestra sounds like? The free lunch concerts of the Residentie Orkest in our new concertzaal at Amare give a wonderful insight and provide an inspiring interlude. We play half an hour from the concert played in the evening on selected Friday afternoons at 12:30 pm. In the What's on on this website you will always find the current schedule of lunch concerts. Please note: reservation is required!
Did you convert Tickets into a voucher worth your purchase amount in season 2020/2021? Because the corona pandemic will last longer than previously anticipated, the culture and events industry is extending the "Save your ticket, enjoy later" scheme. This gives you longer time to convert voucher credits into Tickets for concerts or performances that do take place, namely 24 months. Requesting a refund is also always possible.
Do you still have RO vouchers because you ordered a pass or Symphonic Friday XL subscription for season 2020/2021? You can still use them in season 2021/2022. To do so, select the price type 'RO Voucher' in the checkout area and enter the code.
It may happen that, due to circumstances, a concert program cannot be performed in its announced form. In that case, Residentie Orkest and Amare & Nieuwe Kerk will do their utmost to offer (part of) the program on another date or an equivalent alternative. A change does not automatically entitle you to a refund.
Exchange of loose Tickets
You can exchange your Tickets for another performance through the box office until 6 p.m. on the day of the concert. For this we charge €3.50 administration costs per order.
Exchange within subscriptions, series and passe-partouts
You can only exchange your Tickets for the same concert on another day or time. You cannot exchange Tickets for another concert. Exchanges can be made at the box office up to 6 p.m. on the day of the concert. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per order.

Over the next few months, work is underway at Amare to repair the sunken vibration dampers of the Concertzaal and Conservatory Hall. The work will take place from June through October 2022. We are doing our best to keep inconvenience to a minimum.
For all questions about accessibility for the disabled, we recommend you contact the Amare box office by phone at 070 88 00 333 (di to fri from 13.00 - 18.00). Our colleagues know the building and the halls well and will be happy to discuss the possibilities at any performance.

Please note that around Amare on Spuiplein there is still a lot of construction site. There are no disabled parking spaces at Amare.
The doors to Amare open 45 minutes before the concert begins. Amare is a large building, so we advise you to arrive well in advance.
The cloakroom is open and included with the ticket. During intermission of a concert you will receive a free drink in one of our foyers. At concerts without intermission, the drink is offered at the end, except for the Sunday morning concerts. At these concerts, the drink is offered at walk-in.
Soon the doors of two catering establishments will open at Amare. On the third floor you will find the City Canteen. There you can go all day for coffee, lunch or a daily menu in the company of the musicians, dancers, students and staff of Amare. On the first floor, near the Spui entrance of the building, you will find the second catering facility. Here too you can go for coffee, lunch and dinner with as many natural and local ingredients, world dishes and theater menus as possible.
Amare is ventilated with air from outside. This contributes to the green goals of the building. As a result, it may feel slightly colder in the building. We ask that you take this into consideration when choosing clothing.
Complete your visit to Amare with a visit to Brasserie Amare. Brasserie Amare is the à la carte restaurant where you can enjoy surprising and high quality dishes.
