Opera Gent

In the first half of the 19th century, rich Ghent industrialists initiated the building of a new and luxurious opera house. It was meant to be the showcase for their newly acquired wealth and no expense was spared. In the splendid horseshoe-shaped theatre, being seen was just as important as seeing.

The impressive chandelier is an attraction in itself, just like the three salons, measuring together 90 m long.
