Season opening party

When people start queuing on Sechseläutenplatz at nine in the morning at the end of September, that time of year is upon us – the Opera House is opening its doors after the summer break. All are invited to the annual opening party. This time, we will be premièring our children’s opera Konrad oder Das Kind aus der Konservenbüchse (Konrad or the Tin Can Child) on the Studio Stage, and on the main stage you will be able to attend the public dress rehearsal of Verdi’s Macbeth or a performance of Offenbach’s operetta, Häuptling Abendwind. Of course, you will also have the opportunity to take a guided tour behind the scenes, explore the costume department and workshops, attend ballet workshops, and much more besides. As always, all these events are free of charge

Tickets are available for certain performances.
