A rather special place to experience opera is in the Aalto Music Theater in Essen. The architectural style of the interior conjures up a timeless Nordic aura from Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, complementing the unfolding of scenes on the stage.

An international lineup of ensemble and guests as well as the choir and orchestra perform in a magnificent building that was designed in the late 1950s yet only opened in 1988.
