Season opening party

End of September it’s that time of year again – the Opera House is opening its doors after the summer break, inviting all to its annual opening party. Themed «Everybody dances», the Ballett Zürich is in the spotlight on this day. We will also be staging our successful children’s opera, Konrad oder Das Kind aus der Konservenbüchse, on the Studio Stage, and on the main stage you will be able to attend the public dress rehearsal of Verdi’s Nabucco. Of course, you will also have the opportunity to take a guided tour behind the scenes, explore the costume department and workshops, attend ballet workshops, and much more besides.

As always, all events are for free, tickets will be handed out for some performances.
