  • The neo-classical building, home today to numerous archives, was first opened in 1819 as a court theatre, designed by Georg Moller. With room for almost two thousand spectators, Grand Duke Ludwig 1 wanted to open the opera to a broader public. It has not been used as an opera house since it was destroyed during the war in September 1944.
