Opera for everyone
Built in 1907, the Flemish Opera was an important milestone in the history of the Flemish language. A place where we could enjoy high culture and speak Flemish. In the past, only French speakers could enjoy some opera. Luckily nowadays everybody can enjoy a piece of the best classical performances. The opera pieces are mostly performed in Italian.
After a hundred years, the Opera was completely renovated and reconstructed. The artists can enjoy the modern and comfortable backstage and the fans can enjoy the historical ballroom and the foyer to sip of glass of champagne*.
The way to get a ticket
How to get a ticket ? That’s simple: you just call the office in advance to make your reservation. When the play is sold out, you can still go thirty minutes before it starts to the box office and check if some people didn’t show up. Than the ticket is yours...

Antwerp has no secrets for me: designer shops, fashion design and custom-tailoring workshops, pastry shops you can't afford to miss, small, quaint hotels off the main tourist routes, cultural book shops and wine bars... You'll love to come back. Promise! My little extra: fashion!
