Lonely Planet review
Commissioned by Maximilian III in the mid-18th century, François Cuvilliés fashioned one of Europe's finest rococo theatres. Famous for hosting the premiere of Mozart's opera Idomeneo , restoration work in the mid naughties revived the theatre's former glory and its stage once again hosts high-brow musical and operatic performances.
Access is limited to the auditorium where you can take a seat and admire the four tier of loggia, dripping with rococo embellishment, at your leisure.
