Owner description: 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.

“A joyous night of music at the Opera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012

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 of its way to assist visitors; it was a delight working with them.

The opera house itself is not imposing in the foyer area; I'm not sure if the reconstruction is complete but it is very shallow and when we were there still covered with rough construction detailing. Inside the auditorium, it seems each seat must have good sightlines and the acoustics seemed wonderful.

Women's bathrooms, as is true in far too many places, were small and with too few stalls.

If opera is your thing and you are in Belgium when the Opera Royal has a production, it may well be worthwhile to visit and enjoy a wonderful evening of music.
