Semper Zwei

Directly behind the Semperoper you will find Semper Zwei, an experimental venue for diverse forms of music theatre, a space for numerous musical series, scientific conferences and dance projects – and, furthermore, a place for the Junge Szene as well as the opera and ballet companies to explore innovative artistic formats in a spirit of fun.

From the evening box office and cloakroom located on the ground floor you can reach the auditorium on the first floor via a staircase or lift. The theatre space can be used in diverse ways, permitting variable arrangements of free-choice seating.

Opera barrier free

We are always working to make your stay at the Semperoper Dresden as pleasant as possible. A physical disability should not prevent you from enjoying our opera house. However, we hope you understand that not all barriers can be removed due to various architectural features of this historic building.
