Zurich Opera House

The multi award-winning cultural institution on Sechseläutenplatz is one of Zurich’s most famous landmarks.

With numerous and aesthetically diverse opera productions and ballet choreographies, concerts, and song recitals, as well as a broadly-based program to promote young talent, Zurich Opera House is one of the most productive and successful establishments of its kind in Europe.

The Opera House is one of Zurich's best-known landmarks and offers fans access to the genre of opera from the beginnings of opera history right through to the music of the 21st century. In addition, it delights a huge and diverse audience every year with spectacular open-air performances, such as “Opera for All” or “Ballet for All”.

In 2014, the cultural establishment directly by Lake Zurich was named “Opera Company of the Year” at the International Opera Awards, while in 2019, within the framework of the “Oper! Awards, it won the award for the “Best Opera House” in the international opera industry.

In addition to engaging top international singers, sought-after directors, and renowned choreographers, great importance is attached to training aspiring artists in the fields of classical singing, ballet, and orchestra.
