Le Théâtre de Namur

One of the last and most beautiful Italian-style theatres (19th century) in Europe. Following a fire, the theatre was reconstructed in 1863, in sandstone, quite a rare material in Namur. On its grand three-level façade, the second level features two niches harbouring the statues of Comedy and of Music. Once inside you discover a magnificent blue, grey and gold auditorium illuminated by a resplendent chandelier.

Fully renovated as of 1998 by the architects Thierry Lanotte and Pierre Lamby, the theatre is now equipped with the most sophisticated modern scenic techniques. Since 16 December 1999, the “Theatre” fresco by the French painter Garouste adorns the ceiling of the Foyer.

Thanks to an eclectic programme, the theatre has met with great success for the past ten years.

Opening times:

Tuesday-Friday from 12:00 to 5:30 pm and on Saturday performances from 2:00 to 5:30 pm.
