Beautiful building. Have watched a few ballets over there. It's nice to have drink in "Foyer" from the balcony. View on the famous shopping street Meir.

This was a real treat for us during our three-day visit to Ghent. We travelled to and from Antwerp on the train and walked the short distance to the Opera House. The production and singing were superb and we had a fabulous evening.

A night out to experience Don Giovanni in the Vlaanderen Opera House of Antwerp was fabulous. After the rennovation the building has been restored to it's former glory. Great acoustics, and a world class performance.

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
