The Ghent Opera House dates from 1840 and boasts an atmosphere of wealth and luxury. 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.
Three elegant salons form an impressive 90-meter long enfilade, allowing each salon to be used separately or in combination.
The Foyer is ideal for coffee breaks, lunches and break out sessions.
The Redoute Salon is an intimate oval room, perfect for both seated and walking dinners or receptions.
The Lully Hall was conceived as a concert hall. With its chandeliers, paintings and opulent gold interior, it harks back to the 19th-century origins of the building. It is an ideal room for seated dinners or receptions.
The auditorium is a horseshoe-shaped bonbonière with excellent acoustics and technical facilities.
