In the Margravial Opera House the auditorium can be visited from the parquet floor; there are fixed admission times (see above). After you have taken a seat in the parquet of the opera house, a short introductory film will be shown (German with English subtitles). Our staff will then give you a lecture on the Opera House (in German) and you will have a brief look around the parquet floor. Leaflets in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Czech are available for foreign-language guests.
