Friends make the difference

Why become a friend?

Joining the Friends of Flanders Opera underlines your involvement with opera. You become our ambassador and share your passion for opera with a large group of people who feel the same way about opera. Together we can strengthen the dynamic and the international stature of Flanders Opera.

You can participate in various types of activities in our opera houses in Antwerp and Ghent and register for day trips or our opera trips abroad. Friends are also welcome to the annual Friends brunch and receive special advantages.

In exchange for your support you are guaranteed the best choice seats, you receive first hand information and are able to meet the artists in person. 

Let others convince you...

“For us, opera is more than just a performance. The fringe activities are equally important and that is why we see our opera house as A FRIEND.”

Daniël Block – Friend


Opera is more than a night out. Opera is alive. We are keen to support this important Flemish cultural institution. Especially now that it is taking a new direction, with tradition and innovation combined in a contemporary way.

I opted to join the Friends because I want to contribute to the spread of opera among a broad public and would especially like to make young people aware of the beauty and depth, and even therapeutic value of opera.
