An Acoustic Night at the Theatre is the second live album by Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation that has been released in October–November 2009.

History[edit]

The album is made up of the acoustic set at Eindhoven's Muziekcentrum Frits Philips, from the band's Theatre Tour, on November 30, 2008. It also includes a new studio recording, "Utopia", a duet with Chris Jones, which was released as a single on October 23, 2009. Drummer Mike Coolen performed on the acoustic set: he later became the band's full-time drummer, replacing Stephen van Haestregt who moved on to new band My Favorite Scar.
