Zurich Opera House performs all operas in the original language. Performances are generally given with German and English surtitles. In view of the architecture of the Opera House, please be aware that the surtitles are a service from which not all seats can benefit to the same degree.
The Restaurant Belcanto, with its stunning views of Lake Zurich, welcomes you as a guest with culinary delights not only before and after the performance, but also independently of performances at the Opera House, for example for lunch, with hot food continuously between 11.30 a.m. and 11 p.m. (or for one hour after the end of the performance). The “Piazza” terrace is also a place to linger. For visitors to the Opera house, the Belcanto offers special packages, such as “Opéra Culinaire”, consisting of a three-course menu including aperitif and a programme booklet. For further information, as well as the current menu and wine list, please visit www.belcanto.ch.

The programme booklets contain detailed information, photos, illustrations and articles on works and productions, as well as in most cases the entire libretto in the original language with a German translation.

If required, synopses in English and French are available from the Box Office. As well you can order your programme booklets in our webshop (German only).
