1 Best Performing Arts Venue in The Fairy-Tale Road, Germany

Staatstheater Hannover

Hannover's opera company is internationally known, with productions staged in one of Germany's finest 19th-century classical opera houses. Completed in 1852, the neoclassical opera house has two large wings and a covered, colonnaded portico adorned with statues of great composers and poets. The building originally served as the court theater, but now is used almost exclusively for opera and you can only view its interior beauty with tickets to a performance. It was gutted by fire in a 1943 air raid and restored in 1948.
