Cuvillies Theater

Old Residence Theatre is the former court theatre of the residence in Munich. It was built from 1751 to 1753 by Francois de Cuvillies in rococo style.
Many operas were staged here by the Bavarian State Opera, including the premieres of Mozart's "Idomeneo" in 1781 and Carl Maria von Weber's "Abu Hassan" in 1811.
It was modernised from 2004-2008, and on June 14, 2008, the theatre re-opened with Mozart's "Idomeneo"-a new production.
