La Bonbonnière

Officially the oldest theater in the Netherlands. The creation of La Bonbonnière dates back to the end of the 16th century, when the Jesuits settled in Maastricht. In 1773 this order was lifted by the pope and the Maastricht church was withdrawn from worship. In 1786 the building was given to the city. Maastricht then converted the church into a theater. De Bonbonnière served as a city theater until 1992, when Theater aan het Vrijthof opened its doors.
