Teatre Arena was registered in 1971 and ceased in 1986 due to financial difficulties. The staff joined the Koninklijk Ballet van Vlaanderen to form the musical department.

Arena was a medium-sized theater in Ghent (Ooievaarstraat 62). Subsidized by the Government with a fixed cast. Founded in 1968. First led by Frans Roggen, later under Jacques Veys, assisted by Walter Vanderwaelmen, (playwright) and Jo Gevers (director). Theater Arena started modestly in 1971 with a documentary revue about Bertold Brecht's life. On September 24, 1975, their first full-fledged musical premiered: Preservation (Davies - The Kinks), and by 1980 their repertoire was only musicals.
