A look behind the scenes

Please note that due to the current situation no guided tours are offered. You can find more information in our FAQ.

Did you know that Handel had to fight a duel at the G├Ąnsemarkt just before the world premiere of his first opera "Almira" in Hamburg or that Gustav Mahler was escorted back home by the police after having conducted a show at the Opera? You can hear these and other interesting anecdotes about the past and the present of the house at Dammtorstra├če during a public guided tour. Discover where rehearsals are held, take a look at our tailoring and mask workshop and find out where the props are stored every evening after the show. On top of that you can enter the stage and enjoy the unique view of the auditorium which usually only our singers and dancers experience.

We invite you to take part in one of our guided tours in English.
You can find all the dates online and can obtain tickets via +49 (0)40 / 35 68 68, from our online ticket shop or at our box office.

Attention: Due to the current corona situation we will probably not be able to offer dates until December 2020.
