The open air theater, held every summer in the Vondelpark in Amsterdam, has been saved for at least a few years.
The Vondelpark Open Air Theatre (Openluchttheater) is a popular theater for locals and tourists alike. For several months each summer, from Thursday to Sunday, there are free performances of all kinds.
During the last few years it was continuously uncertain whether or not there would be enough funds for the open air theater to continue.
The city, together with some sponsors, have decided to work together and find the money to ensure the existence of the theater until 2012.
This year the program will run from June 7 to August 23. The theater's website still lists last year's calendar, but the calendar will appear on the Simply Amsterdam events calendar later on.
