Siemens Prize

My first trip to Munich to see the Siemens Prize event. Beautiful hall, smaller that I imagined but lovely almost Grecian style lamps round the sides.

Historic building with wonderful acoustics and sight lines
Aug 2018 • Friends
Our group of 28 took a tour of the Prinzregententheater before dining in the on-site Gartensaal restaurant and seeing a delightful performance of Haydn's Orlando Paladino. With seating for about 1100, the theater was designed to Richard Wagner's specifications, so every seat has a good view of the stage and can hear the voices and instruments.
Our tour included the basement below the stage, which includes a conductor's music stand that bears the wear marks of one of the first conductors in the Prinzregententheater, Richard Strauss.
The dinner in the Gartensaal was a departure from the usual hearty Bavarian fare, and artfully presented. I had baked trout filets that were quite delicate and my husband had a pasta with chanterelles.
We knew little about Haydn's Orlando Paladino before this performance, which was cleverly updated to a 1950s cinema motif. Surtitles in German and English were welcome and unobtrusive, and allowed us to understand the dialog.

Wonderful recital in a fine hall
Jul 2018 • Couples
The Prinzregententheater is a versatile and acoustically more than satisfactory 19th-century building, which can be used for opera, concerts, and recitals. We were here tonight for an evening of songs by Brahms, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov by the bass Guenther Groissböck, owner of a splendid voice. In a Met HD broadcast we saw and heard him as an impressive Baron Ochs. He is just as impressive in person. We loved the performance, which was enhanced by having seats in the second row.

Beautiful traditional theatre
Jan 2017 • Family
The Prinzregent theatre is a beautiful old building with wall and ceilings features that will make you love the surroundings for the show will see. The stage is small enough to feel cozy yet large enough for good size productions (we watched the Swan Lake Ballet). The first 3 rows of seats at the orchestra floor provide more legroom and the chairs are quite large, yet, no cushion is provided so expect hard wood seat for the period of the presentation.
The theatre is easily accessible via U-bahn (subway) and City Bus.

A Christmas musical concert
Dec 2015 • Couples
We were staying in a nearby hotel and discovered that this theatre was within short walking distance from our hotel. We enquired if there was anything on and our receptionist informed us that there was a Christmas Concern on the Monday night before we left for home on the Tuesday.

It was an excellent performance with a group of four very talented ladies playing a variety of instruments, singing, some comedy and just great fun.

We really enjoyed the whole of the concert and also the wonderful ambience of the theatre.

During half time there was the opportunity for refreshments and drinks. Coats were hung up for us and we were given a number.

At the end there seemed to be hundreds of people but the coat hanging was so well organised that we hardly waited any time.

I would recommend this venue should you be in that area.

Part of Opera Festival
Jul 2015 • Couples
We visited several times as part of the Opera Festivals in Munich. The building itself is very nice, even if you don't have a performance, it is worth to visit.

Nice old theatre
Mar 2014 • Couples
We saw "Der Bettelstudent" (the student-beggar) and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the building, apart from the operetta which was great. My german is not good enough to understand all the jokes, especially in a song with obviously many references to modern topics. But even if the opera is in german, most people will be able to follow the general story and enjoy the spectacle and the music!

Fine acoustics; excellent sight lines
Jul 2013 • Couples
This is a concert hall that does double duty for opera. We attended a fine performance of Ariadne auf Naxos, with Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role and a superb supporting cast. Kent Nagano conducted the production by Robert Carsen, who seems to be a little too much in love with black, white, and gray these days. The day before we heard a recital of mainly Russian songs by Dimitri Hvorostovsky: superb!

Ornate, old-fashioned ...
Old-school theater a bit out of town - there's a U-bahn though.
