About Zurich Opera House

With a seating of approximately 1100, Zürich's Opera House is a significant attraction not only for its regal architectural style but also for keeping Zürich's rich art and culture alive. The site was the first Opera House in the whole of Europe to have electric lighting, but that's not all that stands out about this building.

The baroque architecture throws light upon the neoclassical style of design which is absolutely exquisite and exemplary, making it one of the finest places to visit in Zurich. With grand Roman Era paintings that adorn the roof and an amphitheatre style arrangement, the OpernHaus, as it is often called, was ahead of its time.

International singers and renowned actors perform here to date, and a grand theatrical performance can be witnessed here on most days. The venue has also been awarded the Best Opera Company of the Year in 2014, so you're sure to spend a memorable time here.
