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 is missing. The bureaucrats chose not to fund adequately to renovate this opera house. It sort of feels unfinished.

£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 those adaptations not always are very successful !
