Concert Halls in Germany
Bayerische Staatsoper München
The “Bayerische Staatsoper München” ist a worldwide known prestigious opera-house that exhibits a glorious tradition. Each year the opera offers 350 pieces of opera and ballet together with the “Bayerisches Staatsballett”. The different venues take place in “Nationaltheater”, “Prinzregententheater” or “Altes Residenztheater”. The opera’s orchestra is the “Bayerisches Staatsorchester”.
The “Oper Frankfurt” is one of the most renowned opera-houses in Europe and was awarded opera of the year in 1995 and 2003 by the journal “Opernwelt”. The “Opera Frankfurt” has got two different venues, the “Schauspielhaus” built after World War II and the more representative “Alte Oper” which was finished in 1882. While stage performances mainly take place in the “Schauspielhaus” the “Alte Oper” is the venue for selected performances or congresses and the “Opernball” – the German equivalent to the “Wiener Opernball”. Like many other cultural sites the “Alte Oper” was destroyed during an airstrike in World War II and used to be the “most beautiful ruin of Germany” for about 30 years – like the Frankfurt people usually said – until it was rebuilt and reopened in 1981. In 1987, the “Alte Oper” was utterly destroyed by an act of arson and had to be completely renovated till 1991.
The Semperoper in Dresden is the opera of the “Saxon State-opera Dresden” and a building with long cultural history. The name of the opera-house goes back on its architect, Gottfried Semper. In the past the building was destroyed twice by a fire in 1869 and the big airstrike on Dresden during World War II in February 1945, where the city was nearly destroyed. Today’s building has been reconstructed during 1977 and 1985. Beside its prominence as a venue for excellent operas and classical music events it is famous for its tragic history of repeated devastation and rebuilding throughout the time. In the German public the Semperoper is apprehended as a monument for the strength of Dresden’s inhabitants to come through the suffering of war and to underline Dresden’s relevance as an important cultural site in Europe.
