Opera and darkwave in Leipzig
Leipzig has two major musical claims to fame. On the one hand, it has one of Europe's very oldest opera houses. Built in the 1600s at the very birth of the art form on the Continent, Opernhaus Leipzig has showcased an endless procession of the world's most acclaimed productions and companies. It's one the very best opera venues for which you can book tickets on StubHub. In a completely different vein, Leipzig has become a focal point of "darkwave" music, with venues like Taubchenthal historically hosting a full roster of artists every week. Pentacost has also hosted the biggest goth and darkwave music festival in the world every year. Your haul of Leipzig event tickets should definitely include these venues to get the full flavour of the city.
