"Tour of the Semper Opera" Semperoper - Semper Opera House Tip by Nemorino
Semperoper - Semper Opera House, Dresden: 50 reviews and 95 photos
Tours of the opera house are offered whenever there is no performance or rehearsal in progress or in preparation on the main stage. The exact dates and times are listed on the opera's website, but on the German language side only.
When I was there recently they offered tours every half hour from 9.00 to 11.30 in the morning, but none after that because they were getting ready for a performance at 16.00 in the afternoon. Some days it's the other way around, or all day or not at all, depending on the schedule. But when they do run tours they are very flexible about it, and will start a new tour every five or ten minutes if enough people are waiting outside.
Tickets cost EUR 5.00 (or EUR 3.00 reduced, or EUR 10 for a family) and are sold at the door only, the door being on the side of the building off to the right.
The tours are in German, but they will be glad to lend you a text in English, French, Japanese, Spanish, Czech, Russian, Italian or Polish so you can follow what is being said.
Unlike most opera tours in Germany, the tour of the Semper Opera does not take you backstage, simply because there is so much to see in the front end of the house.
