Seduction at the Kraftwerk
Popular classics and surprising discoveries mean great entertainment is guaranteed!
Soak up the impressive atmosphere at the Staatsoperette in the heart of the cultural and arts metropolis of Dresden. The Kraftwerk Mitte, a former 19th-century industrial site, has now become a vibrant, mesmerising venue for theatre productions, concerts, creatives, exhibitions and dining.
It is also home to the Staatsoperette and its varied programme. With lavish operettas, boppy musicals and unique revues, the ensemble of singers, ballets, choirs and orchestras delights audiences with all forms of art every evening.
The extensive repertoire on offer at this Dresden institution includes popular operettas such as 'Die Fledermaus', 'Casanova' and perennial favourite 'The White Horse Inn'. Also worth a mention is 'Zwei Krawatten', a marvellously entertaining revue featuring great acts, magnificent costumes and fabulous jazz sounds.
The Staatsoperette also has much to offer in the way of musicals, with a programme that includes famous works such as 'My Fair Lady', Rodgers and Hammerstein's 'Cinderella', 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' and 'Grimm! – The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood and Her Wolf'. The varied, entertaining offering is further enriched by the Staatsoperette's own revue productions 'Hier und Jetzt und Himmelblau' ("Here and now and as blue as the sky")- a touching evening capturing mini episodes from daily life and showcasing them on a grander scale - and 'So verliebt in die Liebe' ("So in love with love")- an operetta revue full of wit, charm and wonderful music.
You can enjoy all of this from an impressive auditorium boasting optimum acoustics and tiered rows that ensure an excellent view from each of the 700 seats. A subtitling system also provides texts in English as an additional service for international guests.
And rounding off an all-round fabulous night at the theatre is a wide range of dining options - from snacks to three-course menus.
