Semper Opera House

This imposing 19th-century opera house was named after its architect who built in in 1841 and then also oversaw its reconstructions after it was heavily damaged by fire. Several architectonic styles are combined in the design of this building and it is considered to be one of the gems of Dresden architecture.

The opera is boasting a quality ensemble. It is a must-see for opera fans, but not only them. The building is worth a visit for its sheer beauty. If you decide to go see a performance here, be sure to consult the official website regarding the dress code.
