OPERA IN THE RUHR METROPOLIS
Lovers of opera may have experienced performances in various languages including German or Italian and be aware that enjoyment is to be had regardless of their mother tongue.
Magnificent operas can be experienced in several locations across the Ruhr Metropolis.
A rather special place to experience opera is in the Aalto Music Theater in Essen. Some cultural institutions offer so-called music theatre alongside other genres of stage performances.

The public transport system in Ruhr is extensive, safe and normally efficient. A dense network of trams, Strassenbahn, above and below ground as well as buses serve the cities and suburbs. Links via the local and S-Bahn train systems interconnect many neighbouring communities.
