about opera house

Zürich is rich in culture and art and the best example of both on stage is the ' Opera House' or 'Opernhaus'. It was the first Opera House in the entire Europe that had electric lighting. The baroque revival architecture of the Opera House throws light on the neo baroque style which is extremely spectacular and exquisite. The theater has a 'larger than life' feel with grand roman paintings on the roof and classic seating arrangement in an amphitheater style.

The Opera incorporates many of the elements of spoken theater such as acting, scenery, costumes and dance in a theatrical setting.The first opera performed there was Richard Wagner’s ‘Lohengrin’. Ferruccio Busoni, Paul Hindemith, Richard Strauss, Othmar Schoeck, Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin and other famous composers all influenced the development of Zürich’s musical and theatrical life. Many international singers can also be experienced live on stage at the Opera House. So come here and be a part of a grand art and cultural spectacle!
