Try and see something here! The theatre offers performances almost every night of the season, often with adjacent performances in the smaller house and studio. Always a high level of entertainment with a broad mix of classic repertoire with newer jewels.

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.
