Opera in the Ruhr Metropolis

Magnificent and moving stories sung in Ruhr

Written by Garry on


A rather special place to experience opera is in the Aalto Music Theater in Essen. The architectural style of the interior conjures up a timeless aura, complementing the unfolding of scenes on the stage.

Lovers of opera will have experienced performances in several languages and be aware that enjoyment is to be had regardless of the mother tongue.

Other locations to enjoy opera include Dortmund, Duisburg and Hagen

Visitors to the Musiktheater im Revier (MIR) can take pleasure in contemporary interpretations of rather less shown operas, ballet or dance performances and concerts. The international ensembles bring passion to their professions and the unique building created in 1959 is extraordinary.
