One of the most popular attractions in all of Essen, the Aalto Theater is well known not only for its extravagantly staged performances and the high quality of their orchestra, but also the strange and quirky architecture that defines the theater. Built in 1988 by the famous German architect Alvar Aalto, the Aalto Theater’s façade is constructed in such a way as to bring to mind the black and white alternating keys of a piano.
This is highly fitting as the theater is often the venue for afternoon piano concerts as well as other musical performances. This touch makes the theater one of the most beautiful in the country in the eyes of many. It is famous also for its performances in both the opera and the ballet, bringing out the best of the German artistic tradition with powerful acoustics and lighting that this among the best in the industry. The Essen Philharmonic performs here regularly as well, so there’s bound to be something great happening at the Aalto Theater, no matter when you happen to stop by for a visit.
