Die Bühne des Nationaltheaters

Guided tours of the National Theatre

Without doubt, opera and ballet fascinate theatre goers in a unique way. A guided tour of the Munich Opera presents information on the immense logistic complexity of each performance as well as interesting information on the staff on stage and behind the scenes, the architecture of the building and the characters who have shaped this institution. More than 350 years of opera and ballet in Munich provide for the historical background.

A tour of the National Theatre includes a visit to the Royal Hall and the adjacent Ionic Halls as well as the auditorium, the prompter’s box and the impressive area below the stage.

Tours of the National Theatre are conducted several times a week at 2:00 P.M. and last one good hour. Tickets cost € 7.00 (reduced price = € 5.00) and are available at the Opera Shop in the Box Office lobby.
