Restored to its former magnificence after its destruction in the 1945 bombing of Dresden, this elaborate, High Renaissance style opera house presents opera, ballet and jazz performances, and is worth a visit if only to marvel at its ornate interior.

The opera house in Dresden is must to see. In fact you cannot miss it if you are downtown. A extraordinary building but rarely open to the public unless you take an evening at the opera.
Not to be missed.
My daughter (21) and I toured the opera house this afternoon 15 Oct 2018 on the English tour. Our guide Paula was very fluent in English and very passionate about the history of the opera house. Definitely recommend going if you can fit it on...More
This was one of the many buildings rebuilt after WWII. One of THE opera houses of Europe. It is lovely. In the centre of the old town, close to the Zwinger, Hofkirche, Frauenkirche, so you can't miss it if you are wandering through the pedestrian...More
I visited the opera house to see La Bayadere, performed by the Semperoper Ballet. It was a beautiful performance, terrific dancing with amazing costumes and sets. The opera house is quite a treat, all by itself. The architecture is impressive, and the seating is comfortable...More
We went to see Rigoletto: we booked the tickets before leaving the UK and were astonished at how reasonably priced they were. Much better value than in the UK.
The restored building is spectacular. The performance as also excellent. Well acted as well as well...More

This was the first building that we saw during our walking tour of Dresden, and it was hard not to be impressed with its beauty and elegance. The sculptures and frescos were very detailed and stunning. The opera house offers good photo opportunities, particularly in...More
The destruction and rebuild of this opera house (that used to be a theatre before WWII) is the theme of the guided tour. A little slide show at the beginning of the tour gave us an idea how badly destroyed the opera house was. Lots...More
The Opera house has an English speaking tour in the afternoon, 3:00 during my visit. It is well worth the time to see the interior of the building. On this visit, my 2nd, they presented a film on the condition of the building after WWII...More
We participated in a guided tour which took 45 minutes. It was a great experience and we received plenty of background information. No doubt that we will return when the new program is out. We recommend this experience 100%!
