The theater is very nice in its style - lots of crystal, gold, etc. but elegant and cozy.
we saw a number of performances there and staging was not to our liking - modern 'reading' of classical operas.

My daughter's school class attended a production (I got to go along) of Peter's World Tour (It was in German, I think that is an ok translation) and it was the first time I had been inside this gorgeous building. The outside is a landmark in Wiesbaden, along side the casino and across the street from the markt platz. The interior is richly decorated, and the production we saw was excellent. Of note, what appears to be the front entrance (facing the park, they place a skating rink there around christmas time) is actually the back and everyone uses the other side which faces the casino and bowling green.

Beautiful building masterfully kept up and maintained, within viewing distance to the Kurhaus and just a pleasure to look at. Ideally, try to purchase a ticket for a performance for the big hall (das Große Haus) which will allow you to take a look at the very rich interior. Nicely nestled in a wide park area, so enjoy a stroll through the Kurpark located behind the Kurhaus very close by.

Give yourself a shot of culture and brag about it...(even of you find it actually boring). A sitcom is more entertaining, I know, I know, but still this is an experience.

I attended a "Tosca" at this very elegant opera house and was delighted by the performance and dazzled by the beauty of the facilities. Wiesbaden was spared the damage of other Geman cities during WWII and retains its elegant ambiance everywhere we went. The chandelier is a veritable work of art. The restaurant was very good and elegant, but pricey.
