The construction of the then new royal court theater was promoted and promoted by Kaiser Wilhelm II. Wiesbaden was a world-famous spa town in the 19th century and the ruling houses of Germany and also rulers from abroad liked to stay here for cures. In addition to governing in a relaxed atmosphere, rulers also appreciated the culture and theater and opera visits that they understandably did not want to do without during their stay at the spa. Thus, the new theater building 1892/1894 was built for 1.8 million gold marks in the style of the Neobarocks. Models for the new house were u. a. Theaters in Prague, Vienna and Zurich. On October 16, 1894, the new house was opened after only 22 months of construction in the presence of the Emperor.dein-rhein-main.de/staedte/wiesbaden/themen/tourismus/sehenswuerdigkeiten/veranstaltungsorte/hessisches-staatstheater.html
