Semperoper: the jewel of Dresden

Join DW on a tour through Dresden's Semperoper, one of the most beautiful opera houses in Europe. Excellent acoustics and an ornate interior fit for royals, have made its architect, Gottfried Semper, world-famous.

Germany's most prestigious ball is the Semper Opera Ball in Dresden, next held on January 26, 2018. The 2,500-guest event brings together celebrities and members of high-society, and is even broadcast live to thousands of spectators outside the opera house. One highlight is the opening choreographed performance by 100 debutantes.
