Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Deutsche Oper am Rhein (German Opera on the Rhine) is an opera company based in D sseldorf and Duisburg. The opera also has an associated classical ballet company. After the 1875 construction of what became the D sseldorf Opernhaus, a strong connection between the two cities' opera houses existed from 1887 to 1920, and was not re-established until 1955 with the creation of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. The company performs in the Opernhaus D sseldorf, built in 1875. It was partially destroyed during World War II, and reconstructed to officially re-open in 1956. Theater Duisburg, built in 1912, was completely destroyed, and rebuilt in 1950. The current general manager is Tobias Richter; the chief conductor is John Fiore. In 2006 and 2007, a major reorganization and renovation of the Opera House in Duesseldorf took place. The first opera performance in the newly renovated theater was La traviata, conducted by the American John Fiore.show more
