If you do not have the chance to see a performance or any other Opera show, well you can only admire the building from outside trying to get any little architectural detail. However very nice building, I guess it would be a nice experience to see some of the spectacle inside it.

Visited yesterday evening for a production of Akhnaten. The production was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The performance was stunning and really world class and I would recommend seeing anything this company does. The Opera House is well sign posted if you don't know the area and no more than a 5 minute walk from the railway station. As... More

I am not an opera lover but The Vlaamse Opera thrills me with its visually stunning sets! A feast for the eyes and ears.

During a city trip to Antwerp, we encountered smack in the center of town the Vlaamse Opera. Gorgeous building, worthwhile a visit, even if they're nog performing. Try and visit the buffet area on the first floor & enjoy the impressive decorated ceiling

This opera house has had its ups and downs. It is not the prettiest of opera house and it dates from early 20th century hence does not have the feel of the major opera houses of Europe. It was closed for renovations much of the last decade and when it did open the opulence expected of a major opera house... More

£Centrally located, The opera house has a very good reputation and when you have a look at the prices, you don't have to stay outside and admire the building. At the tourist office at the Grote Markt you can also buy last-minute tickets for a performance.

Since several years, we are ticket holder at the Vlaamse Opera. Each time we go there, we are charmed by the architecture of the building : breathtaking! Brilliantly performed productions and a great choir ! Only one remark : the recent years there seems to be a habit to 'adapt' classical operas to modern times. No problem with that, but... More

Excellent productions, great building and architecture. A pleasure to the senses! Even if the venue is sold out, you can try to post yourself at the entrance, sometimes people try to sell spare tickets.
