Bruges frontage of City Theater

The Bruges City Theater (1869) is one of the best-preserved city theaters in Europe and was thoroughly restored in 2001. Behind the sober, neo-Renaissance façade, there is a majestic auditorium and a palatial foyer in an eclectic style.
Cultural center Bruges uses the historic City theater (with around 650 plush seats) as an important platform to present national and international top productions of contemporary dance, theater and concerts under optimal technical conditions.

Hallo John,
Een uitstekende foto van de voorgevel van de stadsschouwburg. Mooi classicistische architectuur die mooi wordt omlijst door de bomen en lampen aan beide zijdes. De warme kleuren van de muren en de rode elementen geven kleur aan de grijze dag.

Nice architecture scene with fine details
Best regards,

Ciao John
lo stile architettonico è molto diverso da quello del centro storico cittadino, ma si tratta di una costruzione molto più recente, per cui lo stile è diverso, sontuoso ed elegante.

Hello John,

Nice view of the theater with the statue of Papageno in front of it. But it would look nicer with a better weather. Have you no pictures with the sun and better sky? You are often in Bruges and this theater is close to the Old Market. Is it possible to visit it inside? I saw in Google beautiful pictures from the interior.

Have a nice new week


Hi John,

the trees are framing well the theater. The point of view is showing the details of the theater. The rain does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello John,
It looks very elegant. The red signs and flags cheer up the dreary day.

Hi John
The image depicts the beautiful architecture of this old building on a rather bleak day with minimal palette. A nice exploitation in this pleasing composition and the trees provide a natural frame,
speck of vivid red is vital contributing factor in i making this a successful pic. Congrats
Best regards

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Une très belle d'image d'archives qui n'a rien perdu de sa beauté.
Le pavage luisant donne plus de force à la composition.

Salut John,
Superbe architecture pour cette façade, c'est bien présenté avec une photo de qualité, la netteté est parfaite comme la gestion de la luminosité.

Hello John,
It's a nice photo of the elegant building in a nicely balanced composition with fine symmetry. The weather was dull but the photo is perfectly exposed and the colours are pleasant.
Kind regards,

Hello John,
Fine capture of this elegant façade that sits well within its surroundings. Good choice of the symmetrical framing. Excellent rendering of the colours and decorative detail.

Hello dear John and have a nice evening
and a happy new week
classical capture during a rainy
day and a cloudy rainy sky
It is a very interesting scenery

in Europe

Hello John,

Happy New Year!

Hello John,

The winged statue of the youth makes a good focal point. A nice diffused light with excellent sharpness and good reflections in the wet pavement. Tfs!

Hi John
now what you could do is post an INTERIOR photo from this grand Theater - do you have any? I'd love to see the inside.
I have a feeling its quite exquisite. The day outside is gloomy and wet, but still worthy of posting. Lovely subject, lovely building. cheers
