    In its present form, it is the third building of the Semperoper.
    The first building was destroyed in a fire in 1869, the second in the air raids in February 1945.
    All buildings have a digital clock (time display with changing numbers).

    The Semper Opera House in Dresden is the opera house of the Saxon State Opera Dresden, which has a long historical tradition as the court and state opera of Saxony. The ensemble of the Staatsoper is the traditional Saxon Staatskapelle Dresden.

    The Dresden Semperoper is not only an architectural monument, it is above all a venue and offers the festive setting for the performances of the opera, state orchestra, ballet and young scene. At the same time it has become a symbol of this city and the epitome of important operatic art worldwide.
    The history of the opera in Dresden goes back to the opening of the first opera house in 1667. Dresden rose to become a European opera metropolis under the Hofkapellmeister Johann Adolph Hasse.

    The fact that King Johann's monument is still standing here is due to his interest in Dante. Without this artistic reference, it would be quite possible that Ross and Reiter would have ended up in the non-ferrous metal collection. King Johann became king in 1854 when his brother Friedrich August died in a tragic traffic accident with his horse-drawn carriage. The monarch had been formed up to that point and thus also wrote the translation of Dante's divine comedy into German that is still valid today. There is therefore a book with Dante's portrait on the back. What he did not succeed in implementing after the German-French war was the Greater German solution he advocated. So a state that included Austria. In 1878, after the opening of the new Semper Opera, it was decided to erect a monument here. It was inaugurated in 1889 and has been the center of the square ever since.

    The King Johann Monument is a bronze, six meter (with its richly designed base 13.50 meter) high equestrian statue of the Saxon King Johann on the Dresden Theaterplatz, which was created by Johannes Schilling from 1882 and unveiled in 1889. In the baroque tradition it stands as a point de vue at the intersection of the central axes of the Semperoper and Sempergalerie.

    Must see if you are in Dresden. The interior of the Semperoper can be viewed as part of various tours during rehearsal and performance-free times.

    The historic center of Dresden is located on the left bank of the Elbe, at the top of a graceful river arch. Protected for centuries by mighty fortress walls, the Saxon residence unfolded splendor and activity here.
    The buildings from the Renaissance, Baroque and 19th centuries still determine the face of our city, the Elbe front.
    Seen from the other side of the river, Dresden shows itself at first glance to be a cultural city of European standing.
    The reconstruction of the city center finds its best-known symbol in the Dresden Frauenkirche, the magnificent baroque domed building that is once again shaping the skyline of Dresden.
    Many important cultural institutions can be found along the banks of the Elbe in the old town: from the Old Masters Picture Gallery to the treasury of the Saxon electors and kings, the Green Vault.
    The old town is also the center of city life: the fate of Saxony is determined in the Saxon state parliament, and that of the city in the town hall. Shopping centers and restaurants, culture and work can be found around Altmarkt and Prager Straße.

    The monument created in 1889 by the sculptor Johannes Schilling commemorates King John of Saxony (1801-1873), who among other things commissioned the construction of the Semper Opera House. Posterity knows him primarily as an admirer and translator of Dante's “Divine Comedy” under the pseudonym Philaletes. Saxony owes him reforms in education and jurisdiction. In the struggle for state unity, the learned ruler was highly valued by his fellow princes as a “lawyer among kings and king among lawyers”.dnn.de/Nachrichten/Kultur/Regional/Wellness-fuer-Koenig-Johann-Reiterstandbild-vor-Dresdner-Semperoper-verhuellt

    After Gottfried Semper's first theater building from 1841 burned down in 1869, the opera was opened in its current form in 1878. After being destroyed by the air raids in 1945, the Saxon State Opera no longer had its own house until the rebuilt Semperoper was opened in 1985.

    The district is on the left side of the Elbe and stretches from the Elbe on the Terrassenufer in the north to the town hall in the south. The district is delimited by the location of the old Dresden fortifications, which were removed at the beginning of the 19th century. This location is still recognizable in many places today thanks to the ring that was provided with green areas after 1945 (a street system consisting of Wallstrasse / Marienstraße, Dr.-Külz-Ring / Waisenhausstrasse and Ringstrasse / St. Petersburger Strasse).
