Tour Cuvilliés Theatre

Splendor and illusion - Munich's beautiful Rococo theatre 

Visit one of the most beautiful Rococo theatres in the world and experience one of the most magnificent places Munich has to offer. The Old Residence Theatre, better known as Cuvilliés Theatre, is a jewel amid the courtyards of the Munich Residenz.


Court architect Francois Cuvilliés did a great job and designed an opera house of incomparable splendor and atmosphere. Immerse yourself in the theatre world of the 18th century and experience splendor and illusion in the authentic place. The highlight in the history of the Cuvilliés Theatre was the festive premiere of Mozart's opera "Idomeneo" in 1781 - well documented by Mozart's letters, which, together with his music, take you into the opera world of the Munich court.
