It was in this world-famous theatre that the revolutionary movement was born in 1830, during a performance of Auber’s opera La Muette de Portici. Destroyed by fire in 1855, it was rebuilt by J. Poelaert. Built in neoclassical style, at the front of the building there is a peristyle. On the entablature, a triangular pediment is decorated with a bas relief of E. Simonis representing the Harmony of Human Passions.
