OPERA BALLET VLAANDEREN

Opera Ballet Vlaanderen creates operas, ballets, concerts and musical theatre with the ambition to excel artistically for an audience as diverse as possible. In addition to the opera and ballet pillars, OBV focuses on talent development, participation and artistic experimentation on important social issues (migration, gender, mental health, ...) by giving people without professional artistic training the opportunity to perform on stage.

All about your journey to the Opera Ballet Vlaanderen

You can buy the Bravo! Ticket on this page, as from 31 days before your concert or show. Simply click on your purchase button displayed above. Attention: the date of the return journey must be identical to the date of the outward journey (being the date of the concert), although it is permitted to travel back the day after.

The only thing you then need, is the SNCB code which can be found on your Opera Ballet Vlaanderen admission ticket. This code starts with a zero, the capital letter i and the letters ??.
