We went here for an opera performance and we liked the building, the interior very much. At the theater there ar interesting sculpturs, and the whole atmosphere is very inviting. And the opera performance was excellent - Falstaff.

What a wonderful event--the annual Handel festival-- to cause us to visit Karlsruhe and the Staatstheater this week. The opera house is not the most beautiful on the exterior but the interior was very well done indeed. Multiple levels allow easy access to food, tables, bar, and just walking about before performance. Even with the large crowds you didn't feel... More

I have a theatre subscription for this place so have watched quite many plays here. Almost each of them was very special due to the great actors' skills and almost each had a stunning stage setting which was creatively used during the play. Very often I anticipate the play to come up as tedious but they always surprise me. Highly... More

On my treveling across Europe, I have visited theatars and concert halls, old and new ones. This one is new architecture. Exterior is more or less like otheres of modern style. But what impress me is the interior, and the most interesting was the auditorium. Arrangement of the seats is very unique and functional. I recommend to everyone who can... More

Nice place for concerts! I have listened to several concerts and operas there and I love the whole atomosphere and so do my friends! Besides, we students from the music concervatoire can even receive tickets with good discounts :)

Visiting from the United States, I saw 2 operas on consecutive nights: "La Vestale" in Karlsruhe and "Nabucco" in Stuttgart. The clear winner is Karlsruhe. Excellent orchestra, soloists, and chorus. Intelligent production within limited financial means. The opera house in Karlsruhe may not be the most pleasing architecturally, but it has convenient seating for the audience, plenty of space during... More

nothing could be seen of the whole place. too little information to go into this place, but it is quite fun as it can take pictures and took some photos around the corner of this place.

For my money the greatest attraction in Karlsruhe is the wonderful opera house. Architecturally not everyone's fancy but acoustically marvellous! Yet the house does not even get a mention on Karlruhe's attractions - perhaps the good towns' people want to keep this particular treasure to themselves. Whilst on a stop over I had a brilliant evening at the Karlsruhe opera... More
