The Theatre Royal de la Monnaie was first built in 1817 but following a fire in 1855 was mostly destroyed, only the huge front of the building survived. It is the centre of performing arts and has a grand interior.

What a beautiful theatre. We saw a stunning Sasha Waltz piece with a pre-show introduction in the grand salon upstairs, dripping with gold decoration and mirrors of course. It would go to Brussels just to see something here.
