The exterior of the building is classical and regal. The concert hall has been updated and the acoustics are excellent. We attended a concert and it was a wonderful experience.

Even though rebuilt, it is impressive and well done. We enjoyed the beauty of the place and we wished we could have attended an opera here.

It is beautiful and you could not tell it was a rebuild but somehow knowing it is detracts from the spectacle. But lovely outdoor cafe for a glass of wine in the sun watching the world go by.

This is at the end of the Fressgass and a great photo opportunity. It is especially pretty at night time.

It is amazing that the old opera house isn't really old but a relatively new rebuilt version. However the facade is amazing and worth a visit.

Hi John I see others have answered. I thought I saw some publicity about it while I was in Frankfurt. Sounds like it will be a wonderful few days. Have fun and safe travels.

Loraine, which concert are you going to? At least there is a "Abendkasse" which opens 1 hour before each concert where you can purchase last minute tickets. Should be possible to deposit already paid tickets there as well... More

Hi! If the concert is inside the opera, then I would definitely recommend wearing something chic. Not necessarily a tie, but a shirt and blazer will do! Hope I could help. Have fun at the concert!
