Wonderful building with superb acoustic, right in the centre of the city. Fountain and red carpet, capacious entrance halls, sweeping staircases, diabolical signing and awful dining, but we go there for the opera and that is truly exhilarating with international cast and the Gewandhaus orchestra....More

Great place to see opera and much cheaper than in England. Anew building with the best of the old in its internal design

One of Germany's best opera companies and featuring the wonderful Gewandhausorchester as well. The building itself if quite elegant in a 60s DDR sort of way.

The architecture of the opera house is very beautiful, especially at night. When the lights are lit, the place is full of character. There is a fountain in front, together with the lighting gives the place a 'magical' feel.

While in Leipzig I had to go see a Wagner Opera, it's only fitting. The Opera Haus is beautiful and very well kept. It was a much smaller Opera house than most I have been to, but it was a pleasant surprise. The production was...More

This building was erected by the communist government in the 1960s, and one has to say that they did an excellent job. From the outside it's about as inoffensive as a large '60s building can be, but you don't watch an opera from outside the...More
