“First-class performance and rehearsal facility”
Review of Theater Basel

Reviewed 20 October 2016 via mobile

Like most theaters in Europe, Theater Basel is a first-rate rehearsal and performance hall. I had a complete tour of the building and observed rehearsals of the Basel Ballet and was most impressed with the spacious studios and the stage itself. This is a city jewel.

The opera house is simple, but beautiful. The public area around the opera house has some great water sculptures. The opera was amazing -- the set, rotating stages, performers -- incredibly talented group coming together. Lovely evening.....

We had a guided tour of behind the scenes of this theatre and it was particularly interesting and informative !
We saw the costumes department, workshops, rehearsals rooms, etc.

I'd like to come again and see one of the ballet they produce each year.

Thus far I have seen and heard a brilliant production of Khovanshchina (it was actually better than the one I had seen only a few weeks earlier at the Vienna State Opera) and very good Zauberflöte (Magic Flute). Reasonable prices - by Swiss standards - and highly competent ensemble (both singers and orchestra). Highly recommended!
