Koninklijke Stadsschouwburg Brugge (Bruges Royal Municipal Theatre)
The Bruges Royal City Theatre (1869) is one of the best-preserved city theatres in Europe. To make room for this regal lady, 46 medieval buildings were razed to the ground, streets were straightened and a new theatre square created. 150 residents lost their homes to the cherished dream of the then bourgeoisie: to have a temple of culture that could stand on equal footing with the large theatre houses of Ghent, Antwerp and Brussels. The sober yet majestic neo-Renaissance facade of this royal theatre conceals a palatial foyer and an equally magnificent red and gold auditorium. This outstanding infrastructure is used for performances of contemporary dance and theatre and for concerts of various kinds.
