Chemnitz Opera

The Chemnitz Opera (Opernhaus Chemnitz) is an opera house and opera company in Chemnitz.

The building, designed by the German architect Richard Möbius, was constructed between 1906 and 1909. Following its destruction during World War II, it was reconstructed between 1947 and 1951. It was renovated again in 1988 - 1992, and is considered to be one of the most modern opera houses in Europe. The house can accommodate 720 patrons.
