Musiktheater im Revier

Written by Anneke Söpper and last edited by Garry on


The visitors to the Musiktheater im Revier (MIR) can take pleasure in contemporary interpretations of rather less shown operas, ballet or dance performances and concerts.

Founded in 1959 the extraordinary building is deemed to be one of the most significant theatres of its time, its unique architecture combining angular edges and elegant curved lines. Timeless design revealing the artwork of several architects and artists such as Yves Klein and Robert Adams.

Admiring stage performances as works of art within a work of art can be a highly rewarding experience.

The establishment provides theater pedagogic, encouraging immersion into the world of opera. Furthermore MIR supports young, talented singers in their studies.
