Did you visit Zurich Opera House’s Open Day last Saturday? If you did you had the opportunity not only to see special performances and taster sessions, but also to listen to chamber music in the “Room of Mirrors” to check out the views from different seats in the theatre, to look behind the scenes and watch demonstration of “fake snow” and “fake fires” taking place on stage as well as disappearing doors and other theatrical devices.
One of the best areas was the Wardrobe section where you had access to period costumes and with the help of very competent “wardrobe mistresses” you could actually choose a costume to try on, along with co-ordinating hats, brollies and even tiaras.
The Opera House is home to opera, ballet, concerts and lots more. It is located centrally in Zurich with views right over the lake and is close to Stadelhofen railway station and is well connected for trams.
Fancy watching Salome, Tosca or Jenufa – all of which will be performing soon? To check out the current Opera Programme click here.
