Well, Badisches Staatstheater is not the best opera house in architecture, as so many post war buildings in Germany aren't. But what's on offer is world class actually, the orchestra is impeccable, the staging very creative and tasteful, and the staff friendly and 'badisch', a...More

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,...More

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...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...More
