    The old opera was badly damaged in World War II. The city council wanted to leave the remains (in some cases there were plans to blow them up). In the 1950s, a citizens' initiative to rebuild the old opera was founded. The reopening took place in the presence of the then Federal President Carstensen on August 28, 1981.

    The rebuilt Alte Oper is one of the concert halls of the city. A lot of classical music, but also pop concerts take place here. The Opera Square is great for sitting in the café and enjoying Frankfurt.

    At that time, the construction costs of the Frankfurt Opera were planned at 2 million marks. By the time it was completed in 1880, it had cost a total of 20 million marks.
    It was largely destroyed in a bombing raid in 1944 and a new opera house was built in 1951. In 1965 the ruins were to be torn down completely, but thanks to civil protests and Germany's largest fundraising campaign to date, it was rebuilt until 1981.
