The best-known building from Frankfurt’s historical past, the neo-Renaissance opera house with which architect Richard Lucae wanted to put Paris and Dresden in the shade. Built from 1873 – 80, the Alte Oper was rebuilt after being bombed during the Second World War and reopened in 1981.

The English Theatre Frankfurt
Wiith seating for 300 people, it is the biggest English-language theatre on the European continent and produces at least five different plays or musicals per season.
During the fair, you can see the musical Sweet Charity by Cy Coleman (music), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Neil Simon (book).
This year’s musical will put our neighbourhood – the red- light-district – centre stage. Meet the ever-optimistic Charity, a hostess at a dance club, who wants to leave the world of raunchy, bump-and-grind nightclubs and start a more “respectable” life. She sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through one misadventure after the next,
searching for love. Based upon Federico Fellini‘s Oscar-winning masterpiece Nights of Cabiria, Sweet Charity is one of the all-time classics of modern musical theatre. Get ready for famous tunes and high-energy dance numbers that will make you glad you decided to “spend a little time” with Charity and her crazy, frenetic friends.
