It is a magnificent classical building located in the heart of Wroclaw, with a rich and colorful history. Opera traditions in Wroclaw date back to the first half of the 17th century.
The most eminent composers such as Carl Maria von Weber, Richard Wagner, Richard Strauss and Franz Liszt conducted here, and leading 19th century virtuosos such as Nicollo Paganini, Heinrich Ernst, Antoni Rubinstein and Henryk Wieniawski gave concerts here.
