As I was exploring Wiesbaden, I came across the Hessen state theater building. It is located at Christian-Zais-Straße 3 next to the Kurhaus. Terrific architecture.
This is a classic Austro-Hungarian Imperial Theatre ...magnificent architecture. So check the dates of the opera and the ballet and book yourself tickets. We saw an opera ....all in German ....didn't understand a word ....but the spectacle was more than worth it !!
We had the privilege of attending La Bohemia at the Opera house, a few weeks ago. The interior of the building is beyond stunning! The people watching was just as much fun as the opera! People dressed in everything from jeans to formal gowns.

Imagine: going to see La Traviata for $15?! Bolero, the Barber of Seville, Billy Budd, and more for $15 or less! And the Theatre is SPECTACULAR!!!! This... 更多
On my second visit to this opera house I was once again enthralled with the decor and the high quality of the performance. We went to see Madam Butterfly and were not dissapointed. The cast were wonderful with some of the most amazing voices. The production itself was sort of amaturish but the orchestra and cast were top level.
