That's how I started out... top... 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

£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.

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.

Small Opera but quality show. I went to see a modern version of Carmen and I really appreciated the place (and the show!).
