Entertaining, making people laugh or cry… That is what drives the Théâtre Royal des Galeries! This Brussels theatre offers a diverse programme, with something for everyone.
A Brussels theatre with a varied programme
Managed with passion by David Michels, the Théâtre des Galeries is above all a place of entertainment. Its trademark? A proudly diverse programme with a desire to offer new perspectives on reality.
At the Théâtre Royal des Galeries, classical and contemporary authors rub shoulders throughout the year. Find authors such as Feydeau, Molière, Shakespeare, Tchekhov, Pirandello, Ray Cooney, Neil Simon, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams, Alan Ayckbourn, Agatha Christie or Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, Gérald Sibleyras, David Pharao, Eric Assous…
In this central hub of the Boulevard, when a classical author features on the programme, special care goes into adapting it to today’s world.
Every year, the Théâtre des Galeries produces the famous Revue, a real Brussels institution. The Compagnie des Galeries, which was created for the 1952/1953 season, has been performing for over 60 years.
The Gallery Theatre, a mythical place
The Théâtre des Galeries is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful theatres in Belgium and one of the most famous, too. With 850 seats, it is one of the largest active theatres in the capital.
It was included in the construction of the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in 1847. Fully renovated in 1951, this Italian-style theatre has not lost its former splendour. With red and gold velvet fittings, a dress circle, a Magritte fresco on the ceiling, and a monumental chandelier, the theatre welcomes you in a prestigious Art Deco style setting.
This Brussels theatre enjoys an ideal location, right in the city centre, with its entrance in the King’s Gallery, around the corner from the Grand-Place. It is surrounded by cafés and restaurants, as well as lovely shops…
