Oude Vest 43, Leiden, The Netherlands, 2312 XS
Leidse Schouwburg remains one of the most prominent cultural venues in Leiden. Its long-standing history dates back to the 18th Century. In the year 1705, the then noted theater actor Jacob van Rijndorp proposed the construction of a new drama hall on Oude Vest. Considered to be one of the oldest theaters of Netherlands, it underwent a major overhaul in the year 1865. The architect commissioned for the redesign was Jan Willem Schaap, who created a spectacular facade and a horse-shoe plan inspired by several Italian theaters. Post its renovation in the year 1997, it was ornately furnished with red velvet seats, gold ornaments and imposing chandeliers. It plays host to a number of theater groups from Leiden and other cities. Apart from theatrical plays, it also stages cabaret, dance and musical galas.
