Leipzig Opera represents more than 300 years of the city' s opera tradition. It is home to renowned soloists, choirs and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
The opera was opened in 1693, making it the second oldest German music stage after Hamburg. The Leipzig Music Trail takes you right past the Opera House and the Leipzig Jazz Days are also an annual guest here. The musicals and operettas included in the programme are performed in the historic Dreilinden House (Musical Comedy).
