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.

Even if you are not an opera fan, the Opera House is worth a tour. Tours in several languages are offered. Definitely worth a tour inside to appreciate the artistry, architecture, attention to detail. Lovely.

Nice facade with very old feel to the building. Didn't get to go in for a show as I was in a rush for time.

The Opera house can only be visited by guided tour so get tickets booked fast as it sells out quickly. Tickets at door and at Information office in centre. Well worth it

We got tickets to see Giselle Ballet on Wednesday 28th June and were not disappointed. The Opera House is stunning and the ballet was superb. Must visit even if you do not see a performance.
