About
We are performing again and would like to celebrate this together with you! From 12.00 noon we will be opening our doors and offering a glimpse behind the scenes with a colourful programme - in and around the opera house. Admission is free for the afternoon programme. Then in the evening, for a small price: a love potion! Donizetti's "L'elisir d'amore" ushers in the season.
In the large auditorium you can watch us at work: at 12.15 pm Antonino Fogliani conducts the orchestra rehearsal for Verdi's "Macbeth". Even before the premiere, let the soloists, our large choir and the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra cast a spell over this dark and demonic work!
At 2.30 p.m. it's "Clear the stage!" for the set-up of the evening performance: Donizetti's "Love Potion" enchants with a sky full of glasses - our stage technology will show you how to make it dance and glow.

Children are invited to two seat cushion concerts in the opera shop at 1.30 pm and 2.30 pm, can have their make-up done by professional make-up artists in the opera house and get creative under the guidance of our opera workshops. We invite everyone to join in: To the open-air ballet training with Michael Foster, the props rally across the opera house and guided tours through the make-up and costume workshops. Next to the opera house and in the foyers you can eat, drink and talk. We look forward to your visit!
