Cuvilliés Theatre

The Cuvilliés Theatre (formerly known as the Residence Theatre) is considered to be Germany’s major Rococo theatre. It is today located in the so-called Apothekenstock (Apothecary Block) of the Munich Residenz and is one of the leading buildings designed by François de Cuvilliés. The theater with its Rococo splendour, where in 1781 the world premiere of Mozart’s Idomeneo was staged, takes you into the world of baroque royal opera.
