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
