New Luxor Theatre Rotterdam
A remarkable theatre design
The New Luxor Theatre is a prominent appearance at the foot of the Erasmus Bridge due to its striking design. The theatre, designed by Peter Wilson, was built in 2001. It was planned that this brand new theatre would eventually replace the Old Luxor Theatre within Rotterdam city centre, but at present both locations are still used for theatre shows. Within the New Luxor Theatre there are three different seating areas containing more than 1500 seats, which makes this theatre the biggest in Rotterdam. Just in front of the stage you can find the stalls and above the stalls there are two balconies.
