Founded in 1967, the association Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège is largely subsidized by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the City and Province of Liege. It is one of three major opera houses in Belgium. From the beginning, the institution occupies the Théâtre Royal de Liège, beautiful building loaned by the City of Liège (opened November 4, 1820). Its location in the heart of Liège and the Euregio, at the crossroads between Germany, the Netherlands, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and France, attracts a wide audience both Belgian and international.

The Liège opera building did recently benefit from a complete make-over, and it shows. The place is tidy and comfortable, and the scene now has all necessary technical tools for large scale opera productions. The program on offer is diverse, but most operas have a short run. Prices are low to international standards. The quality of the productions varies, but... More

Very beautiful building, and it looks even better at night. It's also great on the inside, so if anyone's got a chance to watch a play or a concert, don't waste this opportunity!

I saw Luisa Miller and it was a very nice performance. The orchestra was great and the cast played very well. I liked the father best, but that's my opinion. The building is worth checking out. It was a very good experience.

I enjoyed a lot the performances that were done in a temporary tent (went many times there). So I was really excited to visit the opera in it's real building. I went to see Aida & was very disappointed. The mis-en-scene I found just borderline depressing & wierd. Although I understand that there's a trend for a minimalistic approach (which... More

I have seen four productions here, and all were compelling in some way. Not content to take the easy route, Opera Royal de Wallonie's productions are innovative, sometimes challenging, always engaging. While this is not La Scala or Chicago Lyric, the intimacy of the house (and the relative inexpensiveness of the tickets) make this worth checking out. It might be... More

After the works the Opera of Liege is opening again and now is even more comfortable as the seats are news. The Opera of Liege is good because allow you to see quite well the scene even from the poorest seats.

We attended several performances at the newly refurbished Opera royal de Wallonie and enjoyed every minute of it! The performance was first rate (the Italian sisters of Cav and Pag, set in production by tenor Jose Cura -- who also performed the lead in both of these short works.) It was magical! The opera staff is friendly and goes out... More
