Théâtre de la Monnaie

Interesting
In 1830, this theatre witnessed the beginning of the "September Days". During a performance of La Muette de Portici by Auber, the audience sparked off the rebellion. Rebuilt in 1855 by Poelaert, the building was renovated in 1985-86. The interior is richly decorated, by well-known contemporary artists, such as Buren. The building is nowadays home to the National Opera.
