The Hamburgische Staatsoper is one of the leading opera houses in Europe. Outstanding opera performances and enchanting ballets are on the varied program, which spans almost 400 years of music history.
Since art-loving citizens founded Germany’s first public opera house at Gänsemarkt in 1678, the Hamburgische Staatsoper has had a decisive influence on Hamburg’s cultural life: Operas by Georg Friedrich Händel premiered here, Gustav Mahler directed the house for several years and world careers of great stars such as Placido Domingo began at the Staatsoper. Even today, the audience can experience great artistic personalities and a brilliantly disposed ensembles in Hamburg’s Opera House.
