We will be treated to a special tour of the backstage areas, including the stage scenery setup. Our member Stanislaus Feil will provide a very special demonstration of a mask makeup for a performer. This is a rare opportunity to see parts of the Opera that are normally off limits to the public.

The formerly Royal Theater was constructed in 1909-1912 as a double theater with an Opera and a Theater. In 1924 the buildings where placed under historical protection. Only the Große Haus (Opera House) survived the destruction of World War II.

We have arranged for two tours, a total of 40 persons, first come first served at a cost of: € 5 for members and € 10 for guests.

Following our visit to the Opera House we will have dinner á-la-carte at the
Schönbuch Brauerei Restaurant, Bolz-Strasse 10 (Stephanstrasse - rear entrance), Stuttgart
The Bolz-Strasse is a short walk to the other side of the Königstrasse. The Restaurant is located where the old train station used to be.
