Semperoper - Semper Opera House, Dresden: 50 reviews and 95 photos
The centerpiece of the Semper Opera is the magnificent theater. The regal stage is surrounded by extensive orchestra seating and three balconies with royal boxes. During our visit, the famed curtain was covered, but the massive ornate chandelier backed by extensive ceiling paintings and the ornate decor for the balconies and walls were a highlight of the tour. Camera images cannot do this room justice.
The aura of the auditorium is enhanced by a knowledge of the great composers and their works which have been performed here. Numerous operas by Wagner and Strauss received their debuts in this room and the list of composers and singers who have been featured. The Saxon State Opera Orchestra and Chorus are currently housed here and are world-famous.
