The Oper Leipzig is the family name for three different divisions: the Opera, the Leipziger Ballet, and the Musikalische Komödie. The Opera and Ballet are based at the Opera House, and the Musikalische Komödie resides at the Haus Dreilinden, located in the city’s Lindenau neighborhood. The Oper Leipzig is the third-oldest civic music theater house in Europe, with more than 325 continuous years of tradition. The Gewandhaus Orchestra, one of the top five orchestras in the world, has been the Opera’s pit orchestra since 1840. And since the 2011/12 season, Prof. Ulf Schirmer has served as both General Director and General Musical Director. The complete season is packed with opera, light opera, operetta, musical, and classic and modern ballet. Numerous offerings for young adults and families, along with specialized productions for children, round out the program.
