This 19th century foyer allows you to find your own space whilst still being around other people. “Studying in style”, as you might call it.
Pierre Bruno Bourla built the theatre in 1830, and the first opera had its premiere in 1834. Every important Antwerper over the past 183 years has been here before you and, who knows, maybe some knowledge has lingered in the high ceilings.
If, after a day of studying, you want to turn your mind to something completely different, there are performances at Toneelhuis at 8 pm several days in Mai and June. There are interesting offers during the revision period.
