Behind the historical façade of Frankfurt’s time-honoured Old Opera House lies one of the most outstanding concert halls in all of Germany and Europe. Visitors are offered a high-quality programme covering all musical genres, including classical music, jazz, blues, pop, rock as well as world-famous musicals and show productions.
The congress section of the Alte Oper, that organizes around 50 events per year, enjoys a high reputation. Glamourous balls and international congresses take place in the representative halls and salons of the building.
The history of the house reaches back into the late 19th century: In October 1880, the building was constructed, following the plans of the Berlin architect Richard Lucae. The opening was celebrated with Mozart’s Don Giovanni. After the destruction at the end of world war II, it took almost four decades until the so-called most beautiful ruin of Germany received it’s magnificent facade and the interior turned in to a modern concert hall, that finally solemnly reopened on 28 August 1981.
