Dresden Opera & Ballet Schedule - Semperoper 2017

The Semperoper, Dresden's magnificent opera house, never fails to impress. Its lavish interior is the perfect setting to enjoy the best that the classical music world has to offer.

The theater holds a prominent place in music history. Wagner and Weber conducted here. Strauss premiered Salomé, Elektra, and Der Rosenkavalier at the theater. And though it was destroyed during World War II, it was later restored to its former elegance with careful attention paid to the façade, interior decorations as well as to its legendary acoustics.
