Opéra Royal de Wallonie

The Royal Walloon Opera is being temporarily housed in this circus tent while its city centre building is being refurbished. It's not just any tent though, it also housed the famous Fenice Opera in Venice after its building burned down for the nth time in 1996.

Incidentally, this is my 400th blog post.

WOW 400 blogs, well done. That is a huge tent, must be strange for the opera singers, the acoustics would be very different to what they are used to..

congratulations on the 400th! A lot of wonderful photos which takes so much dedication.
Interesting tent. Is it warm enough inside? Nice history behind it too. I wonder where it will be used next.

400 posts! Well done! This tent reminds me of the tents Cirque de Soleil uses.
